Nutritional Spotlight:

- Live Clams and Mussels: Rich in lean protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

1. Prep Work: 

   - Clean and Prepare Seafood: Rinse, clean, and pat dry the treasures of the sea, ensuring purity and freshness. Begin by giving the clams and mussels a thorough rinse under cold water. Ensure the prawns are clean and deveined, patting all seafood dry with paper towels.

   - Prepare Saffron: Soak in warm water, releasing its fragrance and colour, adding a subtle touch of antioxidants. In a small bowl, let the saffron steep in warm water for 10-15 minutes. This releases its flavour and imparts a golden hue to your paella.

   - Prepare Paella Rice: Rinse the Valencia Paella Rice, ensuring purity of flavour, offering complex carbohydrates. Rinse the Valencia Paella Rice until the water runs clear. Set it aside for the cooking process.

   - Prepare Halibut Stock: Warm it for the upcoming infusion, a base rich in minerals. Warm the Halibut Stock in a separate pot over medium heat, keeping it ready for later.

2. Cooking: 

   - Start Cooking Paella: Olive oil sizzles, setting the stage for a flavourful dance. Heat olive oil in a large paella pan or a wide, shallow skillet over medium heat.

   - Add Seafood: The seafood ensemble takes centre stage, searing for perfection, locking in essential nutrients. Introduce baby scallops, prawns, clams, mussels, and the seafood medley. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

   - Add Saffron: The saffron infusion, a burst of colour and fragrance, adding antioxidants to the mix. Pour the saffron and its soaking liquid over the seafood, ensuring even distribution.

   - Add Paella Rice: Each grain coated in the rich saffron embrace, providing a blend of fibre and carbohydrates. Incorporate the rinsed Valencia Paella Rice, stirring well to coat it with the saffron-infused liquid.

   - Pour in Halibut Stock: A gradual pour, creating a symphony of textures, infusing the dish with essential minerals. Gradually pour the warm Halibut Stock into the pan, stirring gently. Ensure even distribution of rice.

3. Simmer and Serve: 

   - Simmer: A gentle simmer, allowing the rice to absorb the essence, retaining nutritional value. Reduce heat to low and let the paella simmer for 15-20 minutes until the rice is cooked and has absorbed the liquid. Aim for a crust to form on the bottom (socarrat).

   - Adjust Seasoning: A touch of salt and pepper for the perfect balance, enhancing flavours without excess. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.

   - Resting Time: A moment to settle before the grand reveal, allowing flavours to meld. Remove from heat and let the paella rest for a few minutes before serving.

4. Presentation: 

   - Serve: Straight from the pan, a communal experience, presenting a vibrant, nutrient-packed feast.
   - Garnish: Lemon wedges for a citrusy flourish, adding a dash of Vitamin C.

Gather your friends or family around as you delve into a paella feast, where every bite is a celebration of Spanish tradition and coastal delights.
