READY IN: 5hrs




  • In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and celery and cook stirring for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • Add garlic, oregano, peppercorns and cook stirring for another minute.
  • Stir in tomato paste and flour and cook another minute.
  • Add vegetable broth (or chicken broth), tomatoes and tomato juice and bring to a boil. Continue to cook for about 3-5 more minutes. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to crock pot.
  • Add chicken and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours.
  • Stir in shrimp, clams, peppers, and parsley. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile in a baggie combine chili powder and cayenne. Add scallops and toss to coat.
  • In a skillet over medium heat melt butter and add scallops and cook, stirring for 3-5 minutes or until scallops are opaque.
  • Add scallops to crock pot, stirring in well.
  • Spoon soup in bowls and serve with hot pepper sauce if desired. I thought this was spicy enough without the Tabasco sauce - but my son added a lot to his serving.
