Seafood is relatively low in fat. It accounts to containing less than 2% fat. They are also low in cholesterol. While seafood is nutritious enough to be low in saturated fats and high in protein, its greatest health benefit lies in its abundant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids can significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular events strokes, and heart attacks.

    Mise en Place
    Prepare the ingredients as follows

    Mixed Seafood: Place it outside the fridge for at least 15 minutes before cooking. This ensures that it cooks evenly and not likely to get rubbery.
    Garlic: Peel and mince.
    Red Bell Pepper: Cut into small dices.
    Red Onion: Cut into small dices.
    Saffron: Soak in about 2 tablespoons of warm water for at least 5-10 minutes.
    Sauté the Seafood
    Heat some olive oil in a sauce pan. On a gentle heat, sweat out the garlic, sweet paprika and onions. Then add the mixed seafood except the mussels and the prawns. Let is sauté for about 3-5 minutes. Then keep it aside.
    Steam the Rice
    Heat a little more olive oil in the saucepan and then gently sauté the rice. Add the stock after 2 minutes, bring to a boil. Then lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover the saucepan and allow the rice to simmer for around 10 minutes before mixing the saffron steeped in water.
    Bring the Ingredients Together
    Then finally add all the seafood back in (including the prawns and mussels) along with red bell pepper and the green peas. Allow it to simmer for another 5 minutes until the rice is cooked. If you feel the rice is drying out, add a splash of water to keep it moist until it is steamed through.
