  1. Cut chicken and pork into approximately 2-inch pieces, saving the bones. Sprinkle meat pieces with salt. Heat oil in paella pan or large skillet and saute pork, chicken, and bones until brown on all sides (10 to 15 minutes). It is helpful to count the bones now. Push meat and bones to the sides of pan. In the center, saute green beans, garlic, and tomato for approximately 3 minutes. Add paprika to vegetables in center of pan. Add water, bouillon cube, and saffron. Cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring all ingredients together. Add salt to taste. At this point the stock should be very strong and tasty. Discard the bones (remember the count). Add lima beans and cook 10 minutes more. Push everything to the sides of the pan, add arborio rice to the middle. Push rice under meats and vegetables so that all the rice is submerged in water. Add scallops. Place shrimp on top and cook at medium to high heat for 20 minutes, adding water if needed. Rice should be cooked, but dry, almost crunchy. Cover with a sheet of newspaper and let rest for 10 minutes. Steam clams in a 1/4 cup of white wine for about 3 to 5 minutes until open. Put clams in shells on top of paella. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve in the same pan.
