Spicy Seafood Stew Recipe (slightly modified from "Spicy Fish Stew" recipe in What Color Is Your Diet?)


  • 2 cups any color bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 14.5 oz cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 16 oz bag of mixed seafood (octopus, calamari, imitation crab, mussels, shrimp)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion 
  • a few dashes of tabasco sauce


Saute onions, mushrooms and bell peppers in olive oil on medium heat for ~8 min.  Add chicken broth, tomatoes, cumin, cayenne, salt, pepper and bay leaf.  (I added the seafood at this point, because some of the things in it were not cooked yet).  Cook, covered, at medium heat for 30 min.  Make sure seafood is cooked.  Adjust seasonings if needed!
