The Fish and Seafood paella is, due to its tradition and unmistakable flavor, the most characteristic and unique dish of Spanish gastronomy. Its origin, which is located in the Bay of Santa Pola, dates back to approximately the 18th century. By then, the fishermen could only prepare a few dishes and this became an icon that has endured in history.

The most interesting thing is that the fish cauldron recipe is completely different from others. Therefore, its preparation is not similar to paella or other rice that contains the same ingredients. In short, it is a gastronomic experience full of an explosion of incomparable flavors.

On the other hand, the fish cauldron receives its name from the cauldron that must be used for its preparation and subsequent presentation on two plates. But how did the fishermen prepare everything with a single cauldron?

Basically, the routine and the fishing task led them to adapt, managing to create a recipe that today has no comparison. It can be served with dry or soupy rice, and its flavor remains intact.

If you are looking to prepare a paella with great flavor and gourmet style, here we will tell you how to do it just by having Caldo de Caldero de Santa Pola and the right seafood. You can surprise your guests with these simple steps:

  • Ingredients for a gourmet paella:
    350 g of rice (for 4 people).

  • Broth from Caldo de Santa Pola.
  • Olive oil.

  • Cut the lobster into pieces. Then cut the garlic and crush it or cut it into slices and set it aside.
  • In a pot or cauldron, add 6 tablespoons of olive oil and make a sauce with the ñora and crushed garlic (and the tomato if you add). You can add bell pepper if you wish.
  • Once the sauce is ready, add the lobster and move to integrate the ingredients.
  • It is time to add the rice.
  • Once everything has been integrated, add a can of Seafood Broth, and half a glass of water (for the 375 gr can, 2 people) or a glass of water (for the 750 gr can, 4 people).
  • Add salt to taste and cook for 20 minutes.

In this way, you will have prepared a gourmet paella in a short time and with Caldero de Santa Pola that offers you the best flavor and freshness of the Mediterranean.

The traditional recipe used by fishermen included a cauldron and a tripod where it could be hung during the preparation. The ingredients were collected from the sea during the task for later preparation.

First of all, the fish and seafood was cleaned, cut and seasoned, and then left to rest for a few minutes. Next, they made a broth in which they included the ñora, potatoes, garlic, tomato and whatever they had on hand. The last thing was to prepare the rice and for this they used the seafood broth to give it an unmistakable flavor.

Currently, the elaboration of the Fish and Seafood Paella is still carried out in an artisanal way, using exclusively fresh, previously selected products.
