It is traditionally cooked in a wide, shallow pan called a "paellera," which lends the dish its name, but a wide skillet will work just as well. While the recipe can vary significantly depending on the region and the cook's preferences, several key elements typically define paella.At its core, paella is a rice-based dish that often includes a variety of ingredients such as saffron-infused rice, various meats like chicken, rabbit, or even snails, and an assortment of seafood like shrimp, mussels, and clams. It may also incorporate vegetables such as tomatoes, bell peppers, green beans, and peas, adding layers of texture and flavor to the dish. The cooking process involves layering flavors and allowing the rice to absorb the essence of the various ingredients and the broth. The goal is to achieve a perfect balance between the tender, flavorful rice and the crispy layer known as the "socarrat," which forms at the bottom of the pan.
