DH made a scrummy paella tonight with prawns squid and chorizo and theres a good sized portion for one left over, I wouldn't normally freeze it as I'm a bit wary of prawns but we have eaten all the prawns in it so it's just squid and chorizo and rice etc. Will it be ok to freeze and reheat another day without making someone ill? Such a shame to waste it
I've done that*, as long as nothing in it had already been frozen and defrosted. Make sure it is cooled when frozen (but don't leave it overnight before freezing). Defrost and reheat thoroughly. Make sure it smells ok.
*When younger and healthier. Don't do it for anyone who is pregnant/ill etc etc.
You can freeze paella as long as it has not been left out for more than a couple of hours. The best way to reheat it is left thawed in the fridge the night before and reheating on the stove using a pan, adds a bit of water if it's drying up.
