paella pan


Paella is a Spanish dish of saffron-flavored rice combined with a variety of meats and shellfish (such as shrimp, lobster, clams, chicken, pork, ham and chorizo), garlic, onions, peas, artichoke hearts and tomatoes. It's named after the special two-handled paella pan in which it's prepared and served. The pan is wide, shallow and 13 to 14 inches in diameter.
