Because seafood paella has a mixture of meat, shellfish, vegetables and rice, it is full of robust flavors, and is quite filling. So, when paella is the main course, it is best to keep the rest of the meal simple, both in flavors and preparation. For those reasons, we recommend a classic Spanish mixed green salad on the side, and ice cream or flan for dessert.
