  1. In a bowl, put the cockles in water and salt. Rinse under running water and place the cockles in a pan, with water over a high heat and open them immediately. Remove the cockles as they open. Reserve your water and remove the cockles from the shells.

  2. Cook the shrimp in water seasoned with salt. Peel the prawns, reserving the heads and cooking water. In the shrimp cooking water, place the shrimp heads and boil for 30 minutes and mash everything. Add the reserved water for cooking the cockles and strain everything into a bowl.

  3. In a frying pan, melt butter, oil, garlic and chopped coriander and let it sauté. Drizzle with seafood water (measure 3 times the volume of the rice).

  4. Bring to a boil, add the washed and drained rice, and season with pepper and chilli. Let the rice cook.

  5. When it is almost cooked, add the clams and stir.
