    Summer seafood paella

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 45 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour

    Serves: 4


    200g Waitrose Whole Grain Rice
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1medium onion, finely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    2 tsp paprika
    1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
    400g can chopped tomatoes
    Large pinch saffron (optional)
    800ml Cooks’ Ingredients Vegetable Stock or water
    400g frozen essential Waitrose Cooked Seafood Selection
    ¼ x 25g pack parsley, chopped



    1. Put the rice in a bowl, cover with cold water, then set aside. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and soften for 5 minutes over a medium heat. Stir in the garlic, paprika and pepper and cook 4-5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Mix in the chopped tomatoes and saffron (if using).

    2. Drain the rice and stir into the pan, then pour in the stock. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the rice is almost tender. Add a little more stock or water if needed – it should be saucy, not soupy.

    3. Add the frozen seafood and cover with a lid. Simmer for 5 minutes, turning the seafood until piping hot and the rice is tender. Scatter with parsley and serve.
