Cheater Seafood Paella

Serves 8

Paella can be one big pain in the, well – you know. This…is not.


  • Two 7-ounce packages Rice-a-Roni Spanish Rice
  • One 28 ounce can tomatoes to make the Rice-a-Roni
  • 3/4 pound raw shrimp, peeled & de-veined
  • 1 pound fresh mussels
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. Cook rice according to package directions
  2. When the rice has about 7 minutes left to cook, add shrimp and mussels and re-cover
  3. Remove the lid, stand back and marvel at your excellence
  4. Serve with a big fat wedge of lemon on the side – but don’t serve any mussels that didn’t opened – because they were d.o.a. and that’s no bueno
