Calasparra Rice is a premium short grain rice used for making authentic paella. We source our exceptionally absorbent Calasparra Rice from Spain, which cooks to a delicate, tender texture.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in heavy pan over medium heat. Add 1 cup Calasparra Rice and stir 2 minutes. Add 3 1/2 cups water or stock. Bring to a boil, stirring once. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until thin crust forms on bottom, about 18 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
This classic rendition of seafood paella features Calasparra Rice, the most popular rice used for the traditional Spanish dish. While Bomba RIce and even Arborio RIce can be used this recipe utilizes authentic ingredients and procedures.
