Seafood Stew (dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free)

This is a warm, filling, comforting stew that is easy to make and perfect for cold winter nights. It’s a delightful mix of light and flaky cod, rich salmon, buttery scallops and tender shrimp. It’s finished with the brightness of fresh lemon to round out the flavors.

3-4 Tbsp high heat cooking oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup parsley, chopped
8oz clam juice
1/2 cup white wine
6 shrimp, peeled and de-veined
4 scallops
1 6oz cod filet (skin removed)
1 6oz salmon filet (skin removed)
1/4-1/2 tsp chili flakes, to taste
1/2 tsp dried thyme
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Salt & freshly cracked pepper

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and a large pinch of salt.  Cover and cook about 5 minutes.  Add the garlic, chili flakes, and thyme and stir for about 30 seconds.

Add the clam juice and wine and bring to a boil.  Add the parsley and fish, reduce heat and simmer – watching carefully – until the fish is opaque, about 5 minutes.  Add lemon juice and salt & pepper to taste.

Hidden in Tea

I am a huge tea fan – green teas, black teas, but my favorites are herbal and rooibos teas. If you haven’t had red tea (rooibos) yet, I highly recommend it as an alternative to black or green. Lots of antioxidants, lots of flavor (everything from robust and earthy to mild and soft), and lotsContinue Reading
