Paella

Deutsch Paella recipes there are certainly as many as there are Valencians. Paella is available only with meat (pork, poultry, rabbit), only with seafood (prawns, clams, cuttlefish, and sometimes fish that is otherwise too small for sale) or just mixed as in my recipe.

Deutsch Shashlik is actually known as a skewer. Original from the Caucasus this is marinated meat on skewers and grilled.

Gyros, the Greek answer to doner – Gyros, die griechische Antwort auf Döner

Deutsch Gyros/Döner is a marinated meat cooked on a vertical skewer. Originally only mutton, now calf or poultry in Germany.

So you cook the whole thing in the pan. 4 servings Ingredients: 800 g pork comb, […]
