  1. Heat the olive oil or butter in a large flat skillet.
  2. Saute the chorizo until browned and remove from pan.
  3. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and add to pan.
  4. Cook until cooked through and browned and remove.
  5. In the skillet, saute the finely diced onion, tomatoes, bell pepper and garlic and cook for about 3 minutes on medium heat until onions are translucent.
  6. Using a food processor or cheese grater, grate the cauliflower until it is in small, rice-size pieces.
  7. Add the cauliflower to pan with the vegetables.
  8. Pour in chicken broth and clam stock.
  9. Add saffron, salt, black pepper, and paprika and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
  10. While that is simmering, add ½ inch of water to a small pan and bring to a boil.
  11. Add the clams and oysters cook at least 5 minutes until they have opened up. Do not use any that don't open! Cook oysters and set aside.
  12. When the cauliflower is starting to get tender, add the shrimp and continue to cook until pink.
  13. When shrimp and cauliflower are cooked and cauliflower is bright yellow from the saffron, add the cooked sausage, chicken, clams, and oysters to the top of the pan.
