This was so easy to make and was hearty on a cold New England night. I only added celery for a littly more crunch. I would probably use olive oil next time.
This recipe resulted in a thick stew that was simply delicious and extremely filling. I couldn't even finish one bowl of it! I did make a couple of changes by adding in some diced potatoes and okra. I also used a half pound of the scallops and fish as you suggested and served this with cracklin bread. Thanks for sharing!
