Seafood Paellas are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Breath of the Wild

Seafood Paellas are made by Cooking a Hearty Blueshell Snail, Hylian Rice, Goat Butter, Rock Salt, and either a Mighty Porgy or an Armored Porgy together in a Cooking Pot.[3] Their default version can be made by using both types of Porgies in the recipe. By eating them, Link can heal some of his Hearts to his Life Gauge. These meals are considered top-shelf and are common in the birthday celebrations of fishermen.[1]

When Link speaks to Kiana in Lurelin Village, she will ask her son Kinov what she should make for dinner.[4] Kinov responds that she should make Seafood Paella,[5] to which Kiana agrees.[6] However, since she's low on ingredients, she asks Link to retrieve and Hearty Blueshell Snail and Goat Butter for her.[7][8] When Link returns with the ingredients, Kiana will ask for them.[9] She tells Link she'll start cooking and gives him 50 Rupees as a reward.[10] Kiana also invites Link to eat with her family since he brought her the ingredients, giving him Seafood Paella as well.[11]

Because the required ingredients are of contradicting effects, no variations of Seafood Paella can be made.
