Are you like me…a push-over for a food magazine? I never met one I didn’t like and rarely pass one on the shelf that I don’t pick up and glance through. More often than not, I end up bringing them home with me.

So, when I picked up a magazine and saw this seafood stew recipe, I knew I had to make my own version right away. And I’m so glad I did. It’s one of those perfect recipes – quick, easy and you probably have most of the ingredients right in your refrigerator and pantry.

A few years ago, BeeBop and I took a quick weekend trip to the Georgia coast. Savannah to be exact.

The coastal area has an abundance of deliciously fresh seafood and you can find it prepared in any way you like. If you like Greek food (and we definitely do!) try Olympia Cafe on River Street.

Oh. My. Goodness. When we ate there, BeeBop had the Spanikopita and I had one of the daily specials. It was red snapper with a lemon-butter-garlic-caper sauce. My word.

I all but picked up the plate and licked it. And if everyone in there had just turned their backs for a minute, I might have given that a try. It was an absolute treat!

But back to the seafood stew. This was the perfect recipe for a cool evening with a lovely fire going in the fireplace. I served it with some Bacon-Cheddar Biscuits.

How to Make Seafood Stew

Diced bell pepper, celery, onions, and garlic.

Prep the bell pepper, celery, onion and garlic.

Prepared shrimp and cod.

Peel and devein the shrimp and cut the cod into one-inch pieces.

  1. I’m making this stew again tomorrow. We’ve had it twice now and my husband can’t get enough of it! I’ve made it with cod but am using salmon this time. I made a loaf of Irish Soda bread today that I think will go great with this hearty stew.
    So delicious and easy to make.

  2. A very good and solid recipe. I had a bunch of seafood leftover from a shipment I put in several weeks ago (from this place, if anyone else is struggling to find good protein: https://qualityseafooddelivery.com/), and I was looking for a recipe to use it all in one go. This is such a great meal! I will be using this again when I get to the end of my next seafood order.

  3. I make something quite similar, and generally add okra & some smoked sausage for a Louisiana kick. Serve over rice, or as is. Easy, quick and makes for happy tummies.

    Miss P

  4. This stew is great with couscous as I cooked the stew I steamed couscous on stop to get the flavor of served it on the side it’s the most flavorful.

  5. Looks wonderful!!! Reminds me of bouillabaisse’ (probably misspelled) without all of the other stuff like clams, oysters and other yucky things. This looks like it would be a great dish served over rice like shrimp creole’. Yum.

  6. you got all the great ingredients in there so I know it was wonderful…just wish I could have slipped in at the table…

  7. Just recently found your blog and I love it! I’m just like you when it comes to food magazines. I buy and subscribe to too many! I just can’t resist them. This recipe looks wonderful! I look forward to visiting back often! :)
