We encourage creativity with the seafood mix to compliment your taste and the selection available to you at your local fish market. I tend to load up on shellfish but feel free to use any type of mild fish that appeals to you. This stew is very forgiving so enjoy and be inspired! Play with the spices and red pepper to suit your taste, but only in small additions so you don’t overpower the balance of flavors.
Note: Feel free to add vegetables to the mix. Sometimes I use small fingerling potatoes, swiss chard and fresh asparagus. It is a great way to add color & texture to the stew!
*Beware: The crabs are amazing in the stew but they are messy to eat. if you have an elegant dinner you may want to skip the crabs or if you keep them offer little bowls of lemon water to wash off your fingers.
