Seafood Paella

I love seafood and I guess that’s rubbed off on my little girl- it’s one of her favourite things. We all love this paella- it’s full of veg and delicious!



Seafood mix (I used 2 packs)

1 Onion

3 cloves of Garlic

1 large Red pepper

1 Courgette (that yellow thing is in fact a courgette from my husbands uncles garden!)

2 Tomatoes

4 handfuls Frozen peas

4 handfuls of Spinach (forgot to put in the picture!)

300g Risotto or Paella rice

1 and quarter pints of Chicken stock

A glass of White wine



Chop the veg and slice the chorizo

In a large pan heat a little oil and cook the chorizo for 5mins to release the oil from it.

Add the onion and garlic and cook for a couple of mins

Add the courgette and peppers and cook for another couple of mins

Add a tablespoon of paprika

And the tomatoes- cook for another minute

Add 300g of risotto rice and cook for a minute

Add a glass of wine and cook until it evaporates

Add the stock- it’ll look like a lot but it will soon be absorbed.

A little salt and pepper then bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer for around 15mins until the water is nearly all absorbed.

Add 4 handfuls of peas

Your seafood mix (I like to pour the water from the box in too for a little extra fishiness!) Cook through for a couple of mins adding more water if it goes too dry.

Finally stir through a few handfuls of baby spinach and serve!
