This delicious seafood paella made with shrimp, mussels and chorizo is ready in under 30 minutes. The secret is cooking the paella in a Crock-Pot® Express 6-Quart Pressure Cooker!

Express Pressure Cooker Seafood PaellaPaella has always been one of my favorite dishes and it also reminds me of our family trip to Spain a couple of years ago. The only thing I did not like about paella is that it that the original paella recipe is so time-consuming so I seldom make it. But since I discovered I can make an amazing seafood paella that tastes just like the ones we had in Spain in under 30 minutes paella has become one of my go-to recipes for entertaining this summer.

Everyone is always so impressed with this recipe and they can not believe it when I tell them that it is ready in only 20 minutes. I am seriously obsessed with my Crock-Pot® Express Pressure Cooker.

I’ve always loved Crock-Pot® products, they are a leader in one-pot cooking and I trust the brand as I have been using Crock-Pot® products since I learned to cook. It’s a brand my mom used and trusted too. That is why I chose a Crock-Pot® Express over other brands and I am so glad I did! The Crock-Pot® Express can cook meals up to 70% faster than traditional cooking, so I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with friends and family.

You can also steam, brown, or sauté before programming, making one-pot meals easier than ever. Not only are meals ready faster but the clean up is so easy!
