Fideua: Paella Made with Pasta

Fideua: Paella Made with Pasta

Following with the odd image carrousel on which Barcelona Photoblog is often riding, lets introduce Spanish Fideua, the pasta version of widely known rice paella. As the name suggest you need noodles (fideos Sp.), but not any kind of noodles. A good fideua is made with capelli d'angelo or vermicelli noodles. Like classic paella, seafood is an essential part of the recipe. When cooking any of both bear in mind that you can obtain a delicious dish either by packing the pan with all ingredients you can or by adding just the right spices and a most tasty kind of fish, its stew and fresh seashells. Whatever way you choose don't spoil it all by overcooking the pasta (or the rice in the case of paella). Here is one of the most simple and well explained fideua recipes I found and here is another much more elaborate. During popular celebrations in Spain it is not strange to see these pans or bigger ones (called paelleras or paellas) full of fideua or paella indistinctly to treat passerbyes (sometimes you have to pay for it). This man in Terrasa near Barcelona, was being followed anxiosly by a hungry pack of humans ominously approaching for the feast.

Interesting story behind the picture. The first thing that came to my mind was the cost. Since I do not know your money name it doesn't matter but thought you might want to know what some visitors think about especially when you seem to have all the bases covered.

I, too, would line up for this particular treat. The colour is bright and the centerpiece of the photo. I was interested in how the pan is protected by the shield on the sides.

Thanks my faithful friends.
Abe, we use euros if that's what you mean. Paella or fideua are not expensive at all. Of course you pay more in a good restaurants. So the price may change. But basically affordable. Thanks.
You are invited Sally if you ever return. And you too Kate. Yes it was pretty crafty. I had never seen such shelter for cooking before. He seemed to be well prepared. Thanks for coming and for commenting on my previous post too.

Finally Internet (Because I can have Internet only the weekend and the public holidays), I can visit your blog. This weekend I present Martel in version black and white. I prefer the photographs in b&w and you?
