Paella with frozen seafood

Paella is a typical Spanish dish but my recipe is not done the traditional way. It is more skinny, simple and busy days way with a lots of flavours. Check it out...

1 bag frozen uncooked seafood medley (340g)
2 tabs olive oil
1 medium onion finely shopped
OR ½ cup dried onion (not powder)
¼ cup finely shopped parsley
2 to 3 cloves of garlic
1 red pepper finely sliced
1 can of mushroom
1 can of tomato sauce or diced
1 tabs Paprika
1 bay leaf (optional)
Salt & Pepper
1 cup of brown rice 
 Start by cooking Rice (follow instructions on the packet).
1.   In your cooking pan add the olive oil, onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, paprika, bay leaf, mushroom and seafood. Cover and let all the ingredients cook for 15 to 20 minutes on low medium heat.
2.   After the seafood is done, add the tomato sauce. Cover your pan and let the sauce thicken for 30 minutes on low medium heat. Stir from time to time.
3.   Turn off the heat and add the rice to your pan. Fold gently everything together and let sit for 5 minutes to get the rice flavoured with the sauce before serving.
