  1. Put shrimp shells in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat and cook, stirring,
  2. until they are dry and pink, about 2-3 minutes. Add clam juice, water, wine, saffron.
  3. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Strain the broth,
  4. discarding shrimp shells. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cool; refrigerate. Rewarm
  5. when ready to use.)
  6. Return the pan to the stove and lower the heat to medium. Make a sofrito by sauteing
  7. the garlic, onion, peppers, and tomatoes, and paprika; cook until the mixture
  8. caramelizes a bit and the flavors meld; season with salt and pepper. Fold in the rice,
  9. stirring constantly to coat the grains. Increase the heat to high and pour 4 ¾ cups of
  10. the hot broth into the paella pan. Use a spoon to spread the rice evenly. Adjust the
  11. heat to a vigorous simmer. Add the clams and mussels, tucking them into the rice.
  12. Simmer 10 minutes. Lower the heat to a very gentle simmer and continue to cook 5
  13. minutes. Arrange shrimp in the pan. Continue to cook until the paella looks fluffy and
  14. moist; about another 5 minutes. The ideal paella has a toasted rice bottom called
  15. socarrat. Remove from heat, cover with foil, and allow to rest, for 5-10 minutes, and
  16. garnish with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.
