4. Wash the pot and return to heat. Add oil to the bottom of the pot and with large spoon place rice in the pot, layering it with the shrimp mixture and building it into a pyramid shape. Make a few holes in the rice to let the steam out. Cook for about ten minutes on medium-high heat. When rice starts steaming pour a cup of water, saffron and melted butter over rice, cover, lower heat and steam for about 50 minutes.
