 1 tsp olive oil
 100 g quality chorizo, diced
 3 cloves garlic, minced
 1 brown onion, diced
 Half a green capsicum, diced
 Half a red capsicum, diced
 1 tsp smoked paprika
 1/2 tsp Changing Habits Turmeric
 Changing Habits Seaweed Salt to taste
 Changing Habits Pepper to taste
 1 1/2 cup medium or short grain organic rice
 1.5 litre of chicken stock (or 2 x Tbsp Changing Habits Chicken Broth with 1.5 litres of water)
 Pinch of saffron
 500g mixed seafood (mussels, squid rings, fish pieces, prawns)
 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Heat oil in a large pan over a medium heat.


Add the chorizo, onion, garlic and capsicum with the paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper and cook until soft and fragrant.


Add the rice to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes to infuse the flavours.


Add a pinch of saffron to the chicken stock and pour half of the stock into the pan. Put the lid on and let it cook for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more stock when the rice absorbs all of the liquid.


After 20 minutes, add more stock and the seafood and cook with the lid on for a further 10 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed and the rice has cooked.


Serve with the chopped parsley and lemon wedges.
