AIP Paleo Seafood Paella Recipe - Real Plans

Seafood paella is a festive dish. It’s the sort of thing you want to enjoy on the patio, surrounded by friends on a warm summer evening.

Cauliflower gives a similar texture to rice and it absorbs the rich umami of mushrooms, salmon, and shellfish. It’s true that seafood paella is a meal unto itself – but don’t let that stop you from finishing with something sweet. , perhaps?
