Easy, Light, and Delicious Tomato and Shellfish Stew

by Amanda Russell

I have to admit, not only do I LOVE both seafood and stews, but I also love NOT having to watch my portion size because of an overly rich and calorie-dense meal. So, if you’re like me, and enjoy the comfort of stew, the decadence of seafood and the ability to have a huge portion without the guilt, I think this recipe is a must! 

And not to worry, it’s super easy, requires only, 10 minutes prep time, one big pot and the following ingredients:

  • • 2 tbsn olive oil
  • • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • • 1 14.5oz(411g) can chopped tomoatoes
  • • 1 cup dry white wine
  • • 1 cup bottled clam juice (or fish stock)
  • • 8oz (230g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • • 8oz (230g) sea scallops
  • • 1lb Mussels
  • • 3 tbsn fresh lemon juice
  • • 1 teaspoon capers
  • • dahs of crushed hot red pepper
  • • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • • Makes approximately 4 servings
