Great soup! I made this with a mixed bag of shrimp, calamari, and scallops. I also used white wine and added more cayenne. The soup was great on a cold, rainy day.
Soooooooo Goood. I serve it with garlic bread and dip it in. Soup only gets better the next day, and the next..
wow! best soup i ever made. my celery had gone bad and i didn't have any red sweet pepper. so, i added garlic (i add garlic to everything), doubled the meat, used the "meat broth" to cook the onion/garlic. added chopped clams and a dozen live clams to the boil part, a bunch of old bay, a little more white wine, celery salt since my celery pooped out (so between that and the old bay, i didn't add salt), a little more wine, a big can of crab claw meat. very rich and seafood tasting but very low fat with the skim and i used no fat 1/2 and 1/2.
I didn't make this exactly according to directions, but it was delish nonetheless! I used a 1 lb. bag of seafood mix (shrimp, mussels, calamari, & fish), a can of evaporated milk instead of half & half and milk, and white wine instead of sherry. I also added some Old Bay. I love hot soup on a cool fall day! Thanks!
What a wondeful and delightful seafood soup. The flavors go perfectly together producing a rich flavor that is perfect for a cold wintery evening. This recipe definitely goes in my keeper notebook. Thanks for sharing this winner, MarylandMomof3. Can't wait to make it again!!!
