- Step 1
Heat the oil in a paella pan or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until onion is soft. Add the paprika and turmeric. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Stir in the tomato and capsicum.
- Step 2
Add the rice. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Combine the stock cubes and water in a heatproof jug. Add to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
- Step 3
Arrange the prawns on top of the rice. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the rice is tender and the prawns curl and change colour. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
Time-saving tip: To save prep time, use frozen peeled prawns, thawed.
With a twist: Chicken paella: Replace the prawns with 6 chicken thigh fillets, thinly sliced. Replace the vegetable stock with chicken stock. Add the chicken to the pan with the onion in step 1.
