Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan. Add the onion, garlic, capsicum, and chilli to the pan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes.
Add the paprika, turmeric and 1 teaspoon salt and stir-fry for 1–2 minutes.
Add the tomato and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste. Stir in the rice until it is well coated.
Pour in the wine and simmer until almost absorbed. Add all the fish stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until almost all the liquid is absorbed into the rice. Occasionally fluff up the rice with a fork.
Place the mussels and vongole in the pan, cover and cook for 2–3 minutes over low heat. Add the prawns and cook for 2–3 minutes. Add the fish, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Finally, add the calamari rings and cook for 1–2 minutes. Cook for another 2–3 minutes if the seafood is not quite cooked.
Serve with parsley and lemon wedges. Enjoy!
