season seafood paella recipeSeason with salt, the amount will go to taste but it is important to note that fish in itself is already salty, you should keep taste during the process. Add saffron and the mussels too. Stir to blend. No stir again not to break the rice grain. Strong heat up to start to boil. Fire is essential in this process, the aim is that at 20 minutes the rice is cooked and the paella without broth.
