Seafood Rice

Bring the fish broth to the boil. Add the prawns and cook, covered, for 2 minutes or until cooked through. Strain, reserving the broth. Keep the broth warm.

Shell half amount of cooked prawns, finely chop and set aside.

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Cook the garlic, onion, tomatoes, parsley, paprika and saffron. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Stir in the rice and mix well to coat with the oil.

Brown the rice in olive oil for 3 minutes. Pour in the boiling hot fish broth and the chopped prawns. Bring to the boil and cook over a medium high heat, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Lower the heat and simmer, covered, until the rice is tender, about 15-20 minutes.

Sprinkle the wine over the rice and cook over a high flame for a few seconds. Mound on a warm serving platter and pass with ali-oli sauce (a garlic and olive oil sauce).

Serve the fish and shellfish on a separate platter, garnished with lemon wedges.
