Questions & Replies

  1. This recipe sounds delicious but the cooking time sounds too long for seafood. Will the shrimp and Scallops be rubbery after all that cooking time?


  1. This was really, really tasty. Not to mention easy to make. I didn't have any white fish and neither did my small town grocery store so I used imitation crab instead and it worked out wonderfully! I served it with a warm sourdough baguette.
  2. Hubby and I both loved this dish. I only had tilapia on had, but it worked well with the shrimp and bay scallops. I have prepared an appetizer recipe that cooked shrimp in salsa and butter and that is always a hit at parties. This was an excellent main dish with those same flavors. I had a Roasted Garlic Baguette on hand to sop up the juices and served this with Recipe #160788 for a complete meal. Awesome. I would make this again for company, or just as a quick meal on a weeknight. Excellent.
  3. This was so good! The Scallops were too expensive for my budget but I did have some fresh Crab meat that I threw in just before serving. My husband's a fisherman and I'm always looking for more ways to fix fish. Thanks for a great recipe.
  4. Delicious! This will easily become a family favorite. Adding the salsa sounds a little odd but it adds great flavor. I recommend sticking to a traditional salsa (vs. chipotle, mango, etc.) to maintain a more Italian flavor. I also added some chopped onions, fresh tomato, and a dash of Italian seasoning. This can be made with any variety of fish as others commented. We used cod, shrimp, lobster, and canned clams. Have fun with it!
  5. I printed this out a while ago but forgot about it - then I came across the recipe by chance last weekend and tried it. As described, it certainly is easy. We used the suggested scallops, shrimp and cod and I thought it might be nice with rice. Made some long grain/brown rice and scooped some into the bowl before adding the soup/stew on top. It was a winner! Simple, fast and tasty. Finished with a green salad. What more you could want?


  1. I added three Yukon gold potatos which I had par-boiled, a half of a red bell pepper, and a pkg of imitation crab meat.
  2. This is a seriously delicious meal! I have made it more than a dozen times varying ingredients based on sales or what's on hand. I've used several types of white fish, mussels instead of scallops etc... To cut cost I (sometimes) buy frozen bags of each desired seafood, thaw and prepare. I follow the recipe in terms of all other items and amounts. It is very fast and easy put together as well. A baguette, a nice salad and a bottle of wine make this a favorite in our house that feels much more lux than it is.


I'm a stay at home mom with two kids who make it their mission to drive me crazy!! I love cookbooks of all types, but mostly I am passionate about cookbooks from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
