“Paella is like gazpacho,” Jorge Llusar says with a laugh, “every family has its own recipe – and basically, they’re all fantastic.” Jorge’s family has been growing deliciously juicy citrus fruit for SanLucar for decades. When Jorge has time, which is not often, he goes to the market in Seville and gets fresh seafood for “paella de marisco”. However, this seafood paella is much more than a rice dish. It is “like a trip to the sea,” Jorge says. Squid, mussels and shrimp make this paella a very social meal. “Everyone in our family loves to peel the shrimp and find the mussels,” Jorge says. Enjoy reenacting this recipe and buen apetito.
