This dish is named for the traditional pot it is cooked in. This version contains not only 2 kinds of fish, but shrimp, mussels, and clams as well. Traditionally, it is a thick stewed chock full of seafood. We prefer it more like a soup, hence the optional vegetable broth.
A meal on its own!!! Tastes just like stuffed peppers without all the glamour. Truly easy and satisfying. Comfort food at its finest. Can easily be prepared in a crock pot...at step 3 just throw it in the crock on med for 7 hours . It freezes nicely too!
I got this from a Quick Cooking magazine and it has become a favorite. If you have leftovers, you may need to add additional water when reheating because it gets pretty thick after it is refrigerated. 3/5/10--I went back and looked at my original recipe. I tweaked this by upping the veggies, and I probably use more chicken as Hokies suggested. I usually am pretty sloppy with my measurements on this one, so feel free to add more than the one cup!
Thick rich and full of tomato flavor, and takes only minutes to make --- use good quality Italian canned crushed tomatoes for this, it really makes a taste difference, I also like to add in about 15 minced fresh basil leaves :)
For a low-salt, low-fat diet, coat pan with nonstick spray rather than using butter and use low-sodium bouillon powder, skim evaporated milk and skim milk. Please don't substitute canned for frozen peas; they taste awful in this. Cooking time also includes final 10 minutes off flame.
We are so lucky to have this wonderful grocery store here in Maryland. Saw this recipe on the back of Wegmans 5 pound potato sack, and had to try it. I found it delicious, and perfect for a warm Sunday dinner, or anytime during the week for that matter. I had everything on hand, so that made it even easier. *Note* -- any changes I made or mentioned are noted in the ( ) area. I hope you enjoy this, as much as we do on the farm. Now if I can just figure out how to grow clams!
A great easy soup, that's packed full of protein and vitamins. Economical to make. To make it gluten free ensure your stock and curry powder are labeled as gluten free. The quality of the stock and vegetables used in this dish will make all the difference to the taste
I don't really care for fish soups, but I like this one because the fish is mild and firm and because the broth doesn't take an overly fishy taste. You can use any mild white fish for this soup. I have used tilapia when it was on hand. I also prefer to use a low-sodium broth when it is available. From BHG.com
Most coastal regions in France have their own special seafood & fish recipes; this is an incredibly tasty soup from the Northern French port of Dieppe. It is a meal in itself - a tangy fish soup served with Rouille, garlic croutons and grated Gruyere or Emmenthal Cheese. There is a hidden "kick" by way of the added Cayenne pepper, which marries so well with the tomatoes & fish. I have posted a recipe for Rouille in RecipeZaar - this is an essential extra, the literal translation meaning "Rust" which points towards the colour - it is a very garlicky & hot mayonnaise based sauce.
From BHG.com. The original recipe suggests using the broccoli-cauliflower-carrot mixed vegetables. I couldn't find that mix so I used 1 cup of a broccoli-cauliflower mix and 1 cup of a carrots-corn-peas-lima bean-green bean mix. If you are using a shelf-stable tortellini (like Barilla) add an extra cup of liquid, either chicken broth or water. If you are using refrigerated or frozen tortellini, the amounts below should be satisfactory but use more if you like.
