Delicious recipe from Karen at Greenfield Services.

Traditionally paella is cooked over wood fire so the smoke can infuse the dish with a rich complex flavour. The cooking liquid is absorbed and the rice at the bottom of the pan will toast to a golden crunchy brown. Use in conjunction with wood chips in the EGG to create an authentic tasting paella dish. The pan can also be used to cook seafood and potato dishes. This pan will not fit the MiniMax, Small or Medium EGGs.

This pan is perfect for Paella, suitable for use on the Large and X Large Big Green Egg.

This 3.8 litre / 6.7 pint pan is stainless steel and dishwasher safe.
