This seafood paella is a traditional Spanish dish, and contains crayfish, haddock, mussels and salmon, made with arborio rice just like a traditional paella! This is comfort food – Spanish style! The seafood in this dish also means it’s a great source of heart-healthy Omega-3 oils as well as a host of vitamins and minerals. Seafood has been shown to have numerous health benefits from helping maintain healthy joints, skin and eyesight to improving heart health!

Just as saturated and trans-fats can cause heart disease, there is a group of fatty acids that can actually prevent it – they are Omega 3, fatty acids, in particular EPA and DHA. They have a positive effect on the health of your blood as they lower bad cholesterol and can prevent unnecessary arterial clotting, (stroke and heart attack). There have also been studies to suggest that a diet rich in these polyunsaturated fats can improve learning abilities and cognitive function and relieve depression. Fatigue, itchy dry skin and brittle hair and nails can also benefit from these fatty acids. An intake of about 1.1gms for women and 1.6gms for men per day of these oils is adequate, and this dish puts you well on the way to reaching that weekly target!

This dish is also an excellent source of high-quality protein with 39g per meal. Ensuring adequate protein intake in the diet is so important for growth and repair of muscle tissues, transporting oxygen, hormones and immune function.

This dish has been made with loving care by our Gourmet Chefs in Dublin, using fresh fish supplied locally by Kish Fish. This dish has all the flare of an authentic Spanish Paella, that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home!

Order this on its own or as part of a weekly 5 dinner bundle or why not try our meal plan options to receive a wide variety of our meals all the while hitting your calorie and nutrition needs!
