Shrimp Stew


Happy Friday, Soupers!  Since it’s Good Friday and we’re enjoying the Easter Holiday break, we wanted to try making Cioppino,  but there was one big problem: we were missing a lot of fish and other types of seafoods (mussels, clams, crab legs, etc.).   So we settled on a modified version that’s basically a few stew, and you know what? It was still delicious.  The addition of white wine never hurts either. And finally, the best part of this recipe is:  you throw in everything together and just cook on low.  It’s a perfect lunch ideas, and it’s light.  Pair is with sandwiches and everyone will be full.  You can even serve this cold if you refrigerate for roughly two hours.
