How to make it

  • Heat oil, add fennel, shallots and some salt, cook until vegs are soft. Add garlic & red pepper flakes, saute a few minutes. Add tomato paste, tomatoes with juice, wine, clam juice, water, bay leaf & basil. Cover & simmer about 30 minutes.
  • Add clams & mussels. Cover & cook until they begin to open, just a few minutes. Add shrimp, fish & crab legs, simmer gently until fish is cooked through and the clams & mussels are open. Cook a few minutes longer. Discard any clams or mussels that do not open. Remove bay leaf, add parsley, check for seasonings and add a little salt & pepper if needed.. Serve with crusty bread & enjoy!!

    " It was excellent "

    This is an AHMAZING recipe! I am so proud of myself for attempting it and I was sooooo pleased with the result. I've never made anything like this before. The broth is top notch. I didn't need to add any more liquid than what was called for. I used mussels, crab claws, haddock, shrimp and scallops. This could be served in a Four Star restaurant. It's THAT good! Thanks so much Marie (and Rick!) :) for sharing!
