quick prawn paella

Ever fancied having paella but never had enough time (and patience) to stir and stir and stir for hours? Here’s a quick recipe. You’d be done in 30 minutes. =) I really enjoyed cooking this. Shame I can't cook this tonight as it's Meatless Monday!
  1. Cook the prawns separately. You can either boil them in a water and beer/lemonade mixture or steam them in stock.
  2. Cook rice and frozen peas separately, both in stock.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and cook the onion, pepper and garlic until soft.
  4. Stir in the cooked rice, red pepper and saffron and paprika until well mixed.
  5. Add the peas for the last few minutes until heated through. Season, stir through the parsley.
  6. Top with your prawns and serve with the lemon wedges.
