A very tasty fish stew. This is the original recipe but my husband is allergic to shrimp so I prepare it with scallops or fish with the same delicious results. I also add about 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper for a bit more spiciness.....which is how we like it. I have also served this over angel hair pasta.

Easy to make and lots of flavor. Didn't add any clams, just the bottled clam juice.
