Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the peas, peeled shrimp, pimentos, capers, chicken, calamari and pork. Stir.

In a separate pot, bring the 5 cups of water to a boil; stir in the bouillon cubes and saffron.

Let it stand for 5 minutes until dissolved.

Gently stir the rice into the skillet mixture.

Slowly pour in enough of the bouillon mixture to cover the rice and chicken pieces.

Cover and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes.

Uncover and decoaratively arrange the egg slices and raw unpeeled shrimp on the top.

(Add more broth as necessary to keep the rice moist.

Cover and steam for another 10 minutes until the shrimp are cooked and the rice is tender.

(Paella should be moist but not wet!) Place the pan on a hot pad on the serving table and let everyone help themselves.

Serve with a mixed green salad, red ripe tomatoes and some French bread.
