  • Heat the olive oil or butter in a large flat skillet.
  • Saute the chorizo until browned and remove from pan.
  • Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and add to pan.
  • Cook until cooked through and browned and remove.
  • 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.
  • Using a food processor or cheese grater, grate the cauliflower until it is in small, rice-size pieces.
  • Add the cauliflower to pan with the vegetables.
  • Pour in chicken broth and clam stock.
  • Add saffron, salt, black pepper, and paprika and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
  • While that is simmering, add ½ inch of water to a small pan and bring to a boil.
  • 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.
  • When the cauliflower is starting to get tender, add the shrimp and continue to cook until pink.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley and squeeze lemon wedges on top just before serving.
  • Enjoy!
