Shrimp and Chorizo Paella

Shrimp and Chorizo Paella ~ This is a winning combination - Shrimp and Chorizo and this Paella is sure to become a family favorite {fool-proof recipe as well!} #Paella #ShrimpRecipe www.withablast.net

I am actually no good at making Paella. It just about always turns out a messy, sticky lot of meat and rice, but I have never had a problem making this Shrimp and Chorizo Paella . The dish is definitely fool-proof and perfect for someone like me with specific problems {lack of knowledge?} in making Paella.

The combination of Shrimp and Chorizo is always wonderful, but it is exceptionally tasty in this recipe. If it weren't for obvious reasons, I would eat Chorizo everyday and the same goes for Shrimp, except the reasons are different - one is fat content and the other is pricey - very pricey in Gauteng which is the most inland province of our country {or maybe that would be the Free State?}

Not many people like Olives and you can always leave that out, but if you do like Olives, adding them is highly recommended ! When I had just met Roy, he did not like Olives at all - like is an understatement - he hated any kind of Olive, but now loves them as much as I always did !

Yep, sometimes they only need a little guidance and of course the right wine paired to enjoy a bowl of Olives on it's own. Fortunately, the kids grew up with eating Olives and it is an everyday, ordinary treat to them.
