Instructions

Seafood Stew Instructions:

Method:

• Heat a large frying pan or pot on medium-high heat

• Add a quarter-cup olive oil

• Roughly chop 2 leeks, 1 red onion, 2 fresh tomatoes, 1 red pepper and add to the hot frying pan

• Add a large pinch of saffron, a large pinch of salt, and continue to cook

• Add 3 large yukon gold potatoes, cut into large wedges

• Add 3 bay leaves, 1 large bunch fresh thyme, 1 small bunch parsley, stalks included, chopped fine and cook together for 1 minute, then stir.

• Now add your seafood: 1 large piece cuttlefish, 2 cups cooked octopus, cook 1 minute

• Add in glass of white wine and cook for 1 minute

• Add in paella stock (see recipe attached)

• Add 2 cups crushed tomato and cook 1 minute

• Add 1 rockfish, head and guts removed, cut into 10 small pieces, and 1 pound each mussels and clams

• Do NOT stir at this point otherwise the fish breaks up, as opposed to staying in whole pieces

• Continue to cook until the shellfish have opened, and the rockfish has cooked, about 5-8 minutes.

• Serve while still hot

Paella stock:

• Note: This will yield more stock than you need. Don’t try to make a small amount of stock – with your extra stock you can make soup, freeze it for later use, give it to your neighbour.

• Put the following ingredients into a large pot, cover with water, bring to a boil and then simmer for 1.5 hours

• 2 lbs ling cod or rock fish bones & heads well washed and gills removed

• 2 lbs of crustaceans heads and shells (lobster, prawn, crab etc..)

• 1 head garlic cut in half

• 2 cups crushed tomatoes

• 4 fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped

• 2 sticks (not heads) celery, roughly chopped

• 2 white onions, peeled and roughly chopped

• 2 cups white wine

• 10 sprigs fresh thyme

• 2 fresh bay leaves
