Close Paella Encounters of the Third Kind

I have been experimenting with Paella making these days, playing with ideas influenced by my Italian cooking.  So I asked myself, what if  a partially cooked pan of risotto rice decided to jump in bed with a Peruvian Seafood Medley of Octopus, Scrimp Scallop, Hake,  a few Clams and Heart of Palm.
