* recipe also appropriate for non-winners

1 HOT PEPPER (finely chopped)
3-4 cloves GARLIC (finely chopped)
1 medium ONION (chopped)
½ cup CELERY (sliced)
1 13 oz can DICED TOMATOES
2 cups WATER (substitute 1 cup CLAM JUICE if desired)
1 tsp THYME
1 tsp BASIL
SALT/PEPPER to taste

Heat olive oil on medium heat and add onion and celery and hot pepper. Give these ingredients a minute head start and then add the garlic and salt. Cook until the onion begins to soften and then add the tomato paste. Push the paste around with the vegetables—spread it around the bottom of the pan and let it cook up a minute or two—if the paste sticks a little, that’s cool—because now we’ll add white wine which will deglaze any stuck on paste. Stir. Add a bay leaf, oregano, thyme, basil—throw some red pepper flakes in as well if you like it hot. Let the mix simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add diced tomatoes, 1 cup of broth (I use chicken broth, but any broth will do), and 2 cups of water—you can substitute 1 cup of clam juice for 1 of the cups of water, if desired. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, cover, and allow to cook 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, add 1 lb. of miscellaneous seafood—a variety of big-bite pieces make a nice presentation. Cover and simmer for another 7-8 minutes. Stir in some lemon juice and remove from heat and serve.
It looks tasty in a bowl with a nice pyramid of rice in the middle.
it’s easy peezey and puts a nice glow in your belly.

Bon appétit!

How far ahead can I make this and how long can I have it in the fridge after? Thinking to make this for company but need something that can sit for a few hours.

Hey Chef. Great recipe! I do however have ONE question. When should I add the frozen shrimp shells I saved from my previous shrimp recipe? Please let me know! Thankss 🙂

matt rc says:

The Nando says:

Well, my verdict to this recipe is: AMAZING!! I did it the last thursday for dinner, and my family really enjoyed it a lot. An uncle, who has a very weak stomach, was afraid to eat seafood at night because usually this kind of food is heavy to eat, especially at that time. But as for his own surprise, he had to ask for more, because he really enjoyed it and his stomach was grateful too (lol). With the leftover of the sauce, my mom bought more seafood to finish the stew. So, you have an idea how much me and my family enjoyed this dish. Thanks again for the recipe. Best regards from El Salvador!

I am going to make this but what would be good to use besides white wine? I have misbehaved in the past…. so I don't get to do wine, etc. 😉

PUSH050RaLo says:

tomatoes in seafood I'll pass

Archie says:

huge mistake you made.
next time you make this
sear all your seafood just for a minute rhen add to the pot
youll get a ton more flavor then just adding raw seafood in your pot
