Heat the olive oil in a large paella pan and sauté the onion until soft. Add the garlic and, before it begins to colour, add the tomato sauce.

Add the sugar, salt, paprika and saffron, stir well and cook for 10 minutes.

Add the rice and stir well until all the grains are glossy and coated.

Add the lemon zest and squeeze over the lemon juice.

Bring the stock and wine to a boil in a saucepan. Pour over the rice and bring to a boil.

Stir well and spread the rice out evenly in the pan (do not stir again).

Cook the rice over low heat for 12-17 minutes, moving the pan around and rotating it so that the rice cooks evenly.

Place the prawns and mussels on top after 10 minutes, turning when they are pink on the one side. Cover with a lid to allow the seafood to steam and cook through.

Add a little more hot stock towards the end if the rice seems too dry.

When the rice is cooked, turn off the heat, cover the pan with a large piece of foil and allow to steam for 10 minutes.

Add the grilled calamari and fish to the paella and serve with lots of fresh parsley and lemon wedges.
