Recipe: Seafood Stew February 7, 2010

Filed under: Recipes — onefabulousthing @ 1:22 pm

This is something I came up with when I was trying to figure out what to make with a bag of mixed frozen seafood from Trader Joe’s that seemed like such a great deal until it sat in my freezer for a few weeks because I wasn’t sure how to use it. I’m pretty pleased with the result.


About 2 lbs frozen seafood (shrimp, scallops, calamari – mixed or any one of the above)

Half an onion, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

3-4 tablespoons butter

1 cup white wine

2 28oz cans of diced or whole peeled tomatoes

8oz clam juice

2 cups frozen corn

½ Tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

Salt and black pepper to taste


Heat 2-3 tablespoons butter on medium-low in a sturdy pot or dutch oven. Add the onion and garlic, heat until they become soft. Add the frozen seafood and turn heat up to medium-high for 3 minutes. Add white wine to deglaze the pot, reduce heat to medium. Add tomatoes, clam juice, crushed red pepper, and salt and pepper. Heat through and add frozen corn. Add remaining butter for a richer broth. Can be served immediately, but it’s better to let it simmer for a bit first (lid off if you want to thicken up the broth). Avoid boiling since this will make the seafood rubbery. Enjoy with some crusty bread. Great leftover, but I wouldn’t freeze it.
