Recipe: Weightwatchers seafood paella

Recipe adapted from Weightwatchers

1 Teaspoon of oil
8 medallions of low fat bacon
1 onion
2 teaspoons of garlic
1 red pepper
1 teaspoon of paprika
300g of paella rice
100m of white wine
900ml of hot chicken stock
100g of frozen peas
300g of fish pie mix
300g frozen mussels

The orginal recipe using mixed seafood but we brought fish pie for a change and added the mussels in.

I'd say my version works out 10 propoints per serving
Served 4
Takes 45 minutes 001. Finely chop the onion, bacon and red pepper - don't forget to de-seed the pepper!
002. Pop a teaspoon of oil in the pan and add the bacon. Cook it for five minutes- keeps stirring so it doesn't stick to the pan. Then add the onion, pepper and garlic, stir for another five minutes.
003. Add the paprika and rice. Cook and stir the dish for two minutes and then add the wine. Make sure you keep stirring and cook for another two minutes.
004. Add the stock and stir it all in. Let the dish simmer for 15 minutes, occasionally stirring.
005. Chop the seafood into bite size chunks. You can miss this step out of you choose to get a seafood mix instead of a fish pie mix.

006. Add the peas into the mix and simmer for another five minutes. 007. Add all the seafood and carry on stirring for two to three minutes until the seafood is warmed all the way through. Bon Appetit! We had ours with mini Weightwatchers garlic baguettes to help fill us up. But to be honest you don't need them! This was so filling and just the right amount of stodge. It didn't feel "healthy" at all. I'm going to try and attempt a chicken and chorizo paella next time. I love stodgy rice dishes!


  1. The idea of seafood paella freaks me out, if I'm honest but chicken and chorizo sounds gooood.

  4. I make chicken and chorizo paella all the time and wasn't sure if it was a fattening dish, but reading your recipe I'm delighted that my measurements are exactly the same, if not a bit less!!! Now I know I can pile it on the plate next time :) x

    1. I always thought Paella was really fattening too! I'm so glad it's not as it's one of my favourites!

  5. Ooh this looks lovely! I'm not a huge fan of seafood, I'd love to give the chicken and chorizo one a go though :) xx
