Recipe by Judi Caston

I have varied her recipe slightly, but credit for this goes to MS! This casual meal is a regular hit at our house! Vary the amount of seafood to feed any size gathering. Can be made outside in a turkey fryer pot for a really huge crowd!!

This is an awesome recipe! I just made it for the first time. I followed the instructions completely but altered the ingredients slightly based on what I had available. For the seafood, I used two dozen middleneck clams and a cluster of snow crab legs. For the white wine I used Yellowtail Chardonnay. I made the chicken stock myself from a Costco rotisserie chicken carcass. For the sausage I used Amylu Chicken Andouille Sausage (also from Costco). I didn't have any fresh herbs so I used dried basil and Pirates Bite (a spicy hot ground pepper mix I get from a local spice shop). The dried basil flakes gave it a good look and the pepper mix gave it a little extra kick but not super hot. The result was incredible. Maybe the best seafood recipe I have ever tasted. Very highly recommended.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a very large stock or pasta pot, sauté onions in olive oil until light brown, add garlic and pepper flakes, green pepper and salt, sauté a few minutes longer.
  2. Add wine and reduce by half, add stock.
  3. Add potatoes and sausage, cook 10 minutes, until almost cooked through; add corn and herbs.
  4. Add seafood last, starting with items that take the longest to cook, shrimp should go into the pot last, cover pot tightly with lid after each seafood addition.
  5. Serve immediately from the pot, to retain the heat, large pasta dishes work best.
  6. Serve with plenty of hearty crusty bread, for mopping up the "soup".
