Made this for tea tonight - I read other comments and added 1 tsp of tumeric instead of half and also used chicken stock with the rice. Such an easy recipe and tasted lovely - my partner also loved it!

This is probably the quickest meal I have ever made! It's definitely not the real paella but give it a break - fried rice is in the title too!! I used diced chorizo for ease and added frozen raw prawns instead so took a little longer than 5 mins to cook. However, overall a really easy and quick mid-week meal. Plenty of seasoning and lemon juice required though!

Don't know if it is because I under-seasoned it, or because I could not find proper chroizo, or just because it is a bad recipe but I found this dish bland and couldn't even finish it...very disappointing
