Here are five good reasons to celebrate summer’s final stretch with something a bit different on the braai this weekend:
1. Anyone can braai wors and chops, but paella? Now there’s some culinary imagination and flair.
2. It might look impressive, but paella is actually one-pan-wonder cooking at its best – feast straight from the pan with forks and save yourself the washing up!
3. There’s no fighting for space on the braai grid or the cooking-time issues that the usual braai suspects present (we’re talking to you, braai guest who insists on well-done chops, and you, bringer of the chicken that must be cooked for longer than everything else.)
4. You can get creative with protein ingredients – this recipe uses prawns and snoek, but mussels, calamari, chicken, chorizo sausage and pancetta all mingle well with those delicious smoky flavours.
