What’s Cooking: Dinner party elegance in 30 minutes

(NC) Swap prep time for quality time with family and friends at your next dinner party. A perfect dish for entertaining, this effortless paella is a one-pan wonder that’s hearty, aromatic and best served family-style.

Make a meal everyone can feel good about by choosing MSC certified fish and seafood with the blue fish label. The label means your seafood is wild and traceable to a fishery that is independently certified to a rigorous global, science-based standard for environmentally sustainable fishing.

Using short-grain rice instead of traditional bomba or paella rice allows all the ingredients to simmer and cook evenly at the same time. Cooking a variety of sustainably sourced seafood with chicken and sausage adds a mix of flavours that your guests are sure to love.
