breast into 2 or 3 lengthwise pieces and set aside. Peel shrimp, leaving
tails intact, and devein them. Set aside.

When it's time to prepare dinner, toss corn cakes with 2 tablespoons oil
and arrange on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees 20 minutes, turning once.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add
chicken pieces and tenderloins, shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, garlic,
and shallots. Add wine and cook 1 minute before adding broth, saffron, and
pepper. As ingredients are done, remove them from skillet and set aside on
plate. Remove scallops first, then shrimp. Remove clams and mussels as they
open. Discard unopened ones. Finally remove chicken. Add cream to skillet

ingredients to sauce. Swirl in butter. Season to taste with salt.

To serve, mound corn cakes in center of platter. Arrange piles of chicken,
