Salt

For the rice:
120g cooked octopus
8 prawn tails
16 mussels
30g shallots (diced)
50g yellow pepper

50g white wine
200g seafood stock

For the saffron aioli:
1 clove garlic
120g olive oil

Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the shallots and peppers. Add the rice, white wine and stock and reduce heat. Let simmer for 15 minutes before adding the seafood.
