FROM THE SHORES OF THE MED, TO YOUR DINNER TABLE

Think of Spain and sun, sea and sand springs to mind, but for us it’s the country’s rich and eclectic cuisine that’s a real crowd pleaser.

This paella is the perfect example of land and sea working in harmony. Short grain rice infused with Spanish white wine, fish stock and a splash of lemon oil nestling succulent king prawns, chargrilled chicken and smokey Spanish chorizo, seasoned with an authentic mix of herbs and spices.

Maximum flavour, minimal fuss.

Frozen Spanish Paella - EatBoxed

FROZEN. BECAUSE IT'S NATURE'S WAY OF PRESERVING FOOD

Freezing is nature’s preservative. It’s the most natural way of keeping our paella at its best because there’s no need for artificial colours, flavours or additives.

It also stops the short grain rice leaching out starch, which gives the perfect texture and bite, and a drier, more authentic Spanish paella sauce.

Marinated Olives - EatBoxed

Roasted Bell pepper salad - EatBoxed

Roasted Bell Pepper Salad

Pre-heat oven to 200C / Fan 180C / Gas mark 6. Chop 4 medium bell or sweet peppers in half, remove the stalks and de-seed. Lay cut side down on a lined baking tray and bake for 25 mins until tender and slightly charred. For the dressing, whisk together 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil, 1st. lemon zest, ½ tsp. red wine vinegar & 1 tbsp. rinsed capers until combined, and season to taste. Leave peppers to cool slightly before drizzling over the dressing. Top with a handful of fresh basil leaves and serve.

Glass of Rioja - EatBoxed

A glass of Rioja

A bold dish calls for a bold-ish wine. We recommend a Spanish red wine from the Rioja region. Its sweet, peppery notes stand up well without overwhelming the paella’s big, bright flavours.
