3) Add the water and saffron liquid and cook on a high heat for 15 minutes.

4) Add the clams, cuttlefish, prawns, hake, seasoning and pasta and continue to cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes, until the fish and pasta are tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Discard any clams that have not opened. Serve in individual dished.
