Creamy Seafood with Cilantro

It's been a while since I clean my fridge.I didn't realised I stored so much vegetables and fruits in the lower compartment of the fridge . Maybe I'm too lazy to check the vegetables and fruits each time before I shop at food market.I can't resist not buying fruits or vegetables when I shop at the farm market during summer. Well,now I have to trash away some of the fruit and vegetables that was bad and rotten.I found few bunch of cilantro that is still in good condition and decided to blend it to make cilantro paste from it like pesto paste.Lastly I created a Spanish dish with seafood ,milk and cilantro. To my surprised ,this Creamy Seafood dish taste awesome delicious!!

2 packet Sazón with Coriander and Annatto
1 cup water or chicken stock
1 cube shrimp bouillon
1 tbsp ground black pepper
