Method
1.
Heat oil in a 14-inch paella pan or 4-quart ovenproof pan over medium-high heat.

Crumble chorizo into pan and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned.

2.
Coarsely chop half the green bell pepper; cut remaining half into 1/4-inch wide strips and set aside.

3.
Add chopped bell pepper, onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes to pan; cook, stirring often, until onion is soft, about 5 minutes.

4.
Stir in rice, clam juice, water, wine, saffron, black pepper, salt, basil, and artichokes.

Bring mixture to a boil over high heat.

Then remove from heat, cover, and bake in a 350F (175C) oven for 30 minutes, stirring twice.

5.
Meanwhile, rinse fish, pat dry, and cut into 1-inch pieces.

6.
Stir rice mixture, then stir in fish. Push clams, shrimp, and mussels into rice.

Arrange crab on top.

Cover and continue to bake until rice is tender to bite, clams pop open, and shrimp are opaque in center; about 15 more minutes (cut to test).

7.
Discard any unopened clams.

Garnish paella with green and red bell pepper strips and serve immediately.
