In a wide shallow skillet, heat oil and add onion, garlic, peppers and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer for about 25 minutes. After it cools down a bit, puree the mixture with a vertical blender. Fold in the rice, pour water and simmer for another 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, season the meat with salt and pepper. Saute first the chorizo, then the chicken and shrimps. Bring the sausage, chicken, shrimp and clams into the rice pan. Add the lobster tails, nestling them into the rice and cook up to 30 minutes, without stirring. When almost done, scatter peas on top for a punch of green color. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges.
