Chicken and Seafood Paella

Originating from Valencia on the east coast of Spain, Paella is traditionally enjoyed at lunch time, although we think it also makes a delicious family supper. You can find everything you need for this recipe in the farm shop, and if you visit on a Friday you will be able to choose from a delicious range of seasonal fresh fish from Veasey and Sons.

  • 50ml  Olive Oil
  • 400g  Paella rice (any short grain rice will do such as Spanish Bomba rice or italian Arborio)
  • 400g  Chicken
  • 400g  Prawns or mixed shellfish
  • 1 Large onion - chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves

  • 2 Medium chopped tomatoes
