  1. Chop the onion and mushrooms. Crush the garlic clove.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat oil and cook the onion and garlic gently for a few minutes until softened.
  3. Add the rice and stir over a medium heat for two minutes. Add the stock. Heat till boiling, and then simmer for about 30 minutes (until the rice is tender).
  4. Add more stock or some water if the liquid begins to be all used up.
  5. Melt the butter in another pan. Add the mushrooms and prawns until the prawns turn pink.
  6. When the rice is just cooked, add the scallops and clams to the rice mixture. If using clams in their shells, cook until the clam shells open. Otherwise cook until the scallops are cooked through (their colour changes to opaque).
  7. Stir in the prawns, mushrooms and herbs.
  8. Adjust seasoning, and add a little lemon juice. Serve immediately with a big green salad, or vegetables
