  • Reduce the heat and sdd onions, garlic, saffron, and turmeric and allow the onions to sweat until softenen, but not browned, about 8 minutes.
  • Stir in the rice to coat with oil and lightly toast, about 3 minutes.
  • Add chicken stock and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, adding water if the mixture becomes dry.
  • Stir in the peas, then nestle the bass in the rice; let cook until the fish just starts to get opaque, 5 minutes.
  • Arrange the cockles or clams in a patter, placing the hinges down into the rice so that they open nicely; then place the mussels around in a similar manner.
  • Turn the fish portion, then place the shrimp in a pattern as well; arrange the pepper strips like wheel spokes.
  • Cook another 5 minutes, then turn the shrimp over; arrange the calamari all around.
  • Once the shells are all open (discard those that fail to open), the seafood should all be opaque and cooked through; sprinkle with parsley and arrange the lemon wedges around the outer edge of the pan.
