To prepare this recipe you will need a 17 inch (144cm) paella pan. Due to the size of the pan, we recommend that you cook the fideua on a kettle BBQ or gas paella burner for even heat distribution. Assemble all the ingredients and kitchen equipment on a table near the barbecue or burner, so that you can stay in the area and monitor the cooking.

If using a charcoal barbecue, light the coals about 20-30 minutes before you will start cooking. When the coals are covered in white ash, cooking can begin.

If using a gas paella burner, clean burner assembly according to manufacturer's instructions, and light when ready to start cooking.
