The biggest issue for me is that there is no ocean anywhere near Tucson so that means the seafood will be less than pristine fresh. I prefer to eat fish and seafood only when I am close to it's source. That of course is my 2 cents only.

Sorry, hit post too soon.

Rather than trying to find a dish that isn't local, perhaps you can consider something more local that would ensure fresh ingredients and a wide array of choices of dishes and restaurants.

Thanks for your reply. Paella isn't always made with seafood. Some of the best in Spain is with chicken, pork and/or sausage. But a good point re: fresh seafood.

Carne Seca maybe? Technically maybe it's more Brazil or even Mexico, but it's a bragging right in Tucson too.

Here's a bit on it:

We always hit the El Charro downtown (original one) and have theirs. It's a cute old converted house, and I do love the carne seca.

Casa Vicente serves paella. You'll want to call in advance if you plan on ordering it.

At Casa Vicente you need four orders of paella in order for them to make it.
