    I don't have a tried and true recipe to give you we just wing it when we make it. But I'll give you my ingredients. We just use a large frypan.

    Rice (I use Jasmine)
    Tomatoe sauce
    sundried tomatoes
    lots of chopped garlic
    Saffron
    olive oil
    a little white wine

    Rice (I use Jasmine)

    vegi of the day (usually diced baby squash)
    seafood of the day (mussels, clams, fish, sometimes crab or labster claws
    more saffron

    I make a sauce out of the first ingredients, then stir in the rice and get it coated, then pile the seafood/more saffron/vegis on top and cover until the shell fish open, a good stir and we are done. SURELY not authentic but adapted for a family kitchen! AND GOOD :0
