Sauté the Aromatics: In a large skillet or paella pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Sauté until the vegetables are softened, which should take about 5 minutes.

Rice and Broth: Stir in the brown rice, tomatoes, saffron, and vegetable broth. Bring this delightful mixture to a boil. Then, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 15 minutes, keeping it covered.

Fish and Shrimp: Add the fish fillets to the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Now, introduce the shrimp and peas to the party, cooking for another 5 minutes. This ensures the shrimp are perfectly cooked and the rice absorbs all that flavorful broth.

Season and Serve: Season your Fish "Paella" with salt and pepper according to your taste. Garnish it with the vibrant chopped parsley and lemon wedges. Serve this eye-healthy Spanish meal warm and savor every bite with your loved ones.
