Quick Simple Paella Kebabs
I loooooooove paella. There is something about saffron and a slightly smoky paprika with chicken, seafood, and sausage cooked in rice that calls to me – and it’s so pretty to watch it being made.
I have long wanted to visit Spain and spend as much time as I can eating everything in sight – and would die to head to Valencia where Paella was first made, and take in as much as the delicious saffron spiked dish as I could handle!
There is something so rich and lovely about foods from the south of Spain – the influence of Roman and Middle Eastern cuisine are intoxicating and rich, full of smoky, spicy, and earthy flavors that dance across fish, chicken, sausage, and rice.
I’m totally drooling just writing all this – and checking the prices on flights to Spain 🙂
While I love paella, its a touch of a pain (we don’t have a pan big enough to make it right), and it’s not really an option for a grilling night. Until now, that is!
This recipe reminds me so much of my family’s time in France.
These delicious paella kebabs have tons of rich flavor, and are great served over rice. They are a bit lighter flavor than actual paella (since we’re using a basic yellow Spanish rice- I prefer the Goya brand rice)

These kebabs are so delicious and simple, I know you’ll love them as much as we do!
These are great, because you can prep them ahead of a party or dinner – then just toss on the grill and cook up some rice when it’s time to eat – no hurrying and stirring forever like an authentic paella (which is amazing, but not always something I have time for!)
