Tomatoes Seafood Paella

Exam is over, I have time to sit in front of the laptop to update my blog again. This dish was prepared on Mothers' Day. Instead of queuing up for a decent meal, I decided to keep my day simple and cook one pot meal using my LC buffet casserole. We do not need to pay a premium to have this sumptuous Tomatoes Seafood Paella. 
Can you smell the sea breeze? hmm...

  1. Cooking time varies because cooking pot and stove is different. Please adjust it accordingly.
