Paellero Marinera is named after Paella a la Marinera, otherwise known as fisherman's paella. This style of paella is very popular in the Alicante region and includes shrimp, fish and shellfish.

Carmencita started as a company in 1920 when Jesús Navarro Jover began offering La Mancha saffron for sale in a town near Alicante, in the heart of paella country. What began as a one man business has grown over the last century into one of the most reputable spice companies in all of Spain.

As a suggestion:

To prepare a homemade fish stock, we put 3 quarts of water on to boil with fish*, tomato, and a lightly fried head of garlic. Add salt to taste. Bring to a boil and simmer for around one hour.

*Amount of fish for the stock: around 3/4 lb.
