This particular paella was the first paella I’d ever seen when Steven Raichlen made this recipe on Primal Grille three years ago. I started making my own using a combination of the stove and oven shortly after this . This was only the second grilled paella I’ve ever made and was my best paella by far. It was a little different in that many of the vegetables were cooked on the grill and not in with the rice. I think this high heat grilling must account for the sweetness the paella had, caramelizing the plant sugars in the veggies. Everyone loved this paella and seconds or thirds, so I’m sure I will be making it regularly.
