It is popular up to Garraf, Barcelona (Catalonia). It is sometimes confused with paella from Valencia.The name " A BANDA " comes because rice is eaten apart from fish, (apart = "a banda" ) and it has its origin in the peculiar way of serving this dish that traditionally has a resemblance to the traditional Madrid stew, in the sense that the foods used to make the broth are served as a second course, this time accompanied with "ALL I OLI " or " AJO- ACEITE", which is essential in these dishes and it provided to the seafaring people, calories that couldn´t obtain otherwise, in addition to the antibiotic properties of garlic.
Basically the original recipe is to make paella with a cheap fish broth with many spines called "moralla". This fish didn't have value in the market and it just constituted the livelihood of poor fishermen, who reserved the best parts for sale. And afterwards they generated a second course with the fish used to make the broth. In an excellent and logical evolution of this dish, "moralla" can be replaced by pieces of first class fish, that will give to our second course more finesse and flavor such as monkfish.
