So I was searching my cupboards for sprinkles for the rumballs and found my spanish paella rice. And combined with some leftover pinot grigio I had to use up and some crab stock waiting in the freezer for a purpose, dinner was decided!

This recipe makes a huge pot and is filled with seafood goodness.
