Bright, vibrant veggies are nicely contrasted by the squid ink paella. Squid ink is a coveted, culinary ingredient, famed throughout the Mediterranean. It has a rich, umami flavor with subtle reminders of the sea.
We used Aneto's Squid Ink Paella Base to infuse this recipe with not only the color and flavor of squid ink but fresh fish, shellfish, vegetable, herbs, and spices. This base not only reduces our overall ingredient list, it helps keep this recipe manageable for those who are time-crunched.
If you're new to the paella experience, this dish is a stunningly savory Spanish meal, originating from the province of Valencia. As the dish simmers, the rice absorbs any and all available flavors, making each bite memorable.
