Paella is a traditional Spanish dish that comes in many varieties.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.


Today's Snackshot is of paella, a traditional Spanish dish. There are many varieties of paella, including seafood paella, pictured here. A variety of seafood is used in seafood paella, such as mussels, shrimp, crawfish, and lobster. Sausage, specifically chorizo, is also a common ingredient in paella. A staple of authentic Spanish cuisine, paella is made in a large pan and seasoned with saffron.
