Step 1

Fry the onion, pepper, tomatoes and saffron threads for 5 minutes, stirring

Step 2

Add the bacon and fry for another 5 minutes, stirring

Step 3

Stir in the rice and the stock and bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 minutes or until the rice is cooked. Add more boiling water if it gets too dry.

Add the cooked seafood and continue to cook until the fish is warmed through.

For the cooked seafood I usually use a 1/2 a fish pie mix, and a 1/2 a packet of cooked prawns
