Smoky seafood paella


2 tbsp olive oil
80g chorizo, sliced
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
2 Romano peppers, chopped
1 tbsp smoked sweet paprika
1 tbsp tomato purée
250g Waitrose Bomba Paella Rice
800ml chicken stock
180g pack raw Waitrose
Extra Large King Prawns
2 x 200g packs Waitrose Scottish Mussels
25g pack flat leaf parsley, leaves roughly chopped


1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or paella pan and cook the chorizo for 3 minutes then stir in the onion and cook for a few minutes more. Add the garlic and peppers and cook for 2 minutes.

2. Stir in the paprika and tomato purée and cook for 1 minute then add the rice and toss well. Pour in the stock, bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes then add the prawns and mussels and cook for a further 5 minutes until the prawns have turned pink.
