Regardless, this paleo rendition of paella using cauliflower rice is truly every bit as flavorful as the original, with shrimp, chorizo and jambon, finished with a spicy garlic sauce that'll knock your socks off. Perfect for low carb, paleo, or any other grain free, whole foods approach. When the cauliflower is tender and most of the juices have evaporated, nestle the shrimp, clams, and mussels into the paella.
