Place all the ingredients into a pot and simmer until reduced to 4 cups stock.
Season both sides of fish fillets with salt, pepper, and 1/2 tsp paprika.
Set aside for use later.
Melt 3 tbsp butter in skillet.
Sauté onion and garlic until soft and translucent.
Add rice, paprika, and saffron, then sauté for 2 minutes.
Pour in diced tomatoes and French beans.
Add in stock, stir, and bring to boil.
Season with salt and pepper, then lower heat to a low simmer.

Uncover, spread prawns, bay scallops, and fish fillets on top of the rice, pressing it down slightly.
Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until seafood is cooked through.

You can replace seafood stock with ready made chicken stock.
