Seafood Stew Recipe

Stew is almost as old as time and is known around the world as a comfort food. A warm and cozy bowl of stew on a chilly day fills one’s heart with warmth and comforting memories. When that stew is made of seafood it’s an extra special treat! Below is a special recipe that incases the top of the stew with warm and golden mozzarella cheese for an extra layer of cozy comfort.



1 Large Carrot (Sliced)

2 Celery Stalks (Sliced)

½ Large Onion (Diced)

½ Cup Fennel (Diced)

2 Garlic Cloves  (Mashed)

¼ Cup Fresh Parsley (Chopped)

½ Teaspoon Onion Powder

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste

2 Medium Tomatoes (Diced)

4 Cups Chicken Stock

14oz/396g Cod Fish Fillets (Cubed)

½ lb/226g Mussels

½ lb/226g Sub Clams

½ lb/226g scallops

½ lb/226g Large Prawns or Large Shrimp

1lb/453g Mozzarella Cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 Lemon (Wedged)

Baguette (Optinal but lightly recommended toasted  with garlic butter)


Step 1 – Heat Olive Oil in a stock pot and add in onions and garlic and fry for 5 minutes or until transparent, and soft.


Step 2 – Add in chicken stock, tomato paste, the diced tomatoes, carrots, celery, parsley, and the seasonings and stir together. Bring to a boil and then reduce it to a simmer for 10 minutes.


Step 3 – Once simmered add in all of the seafood and simmer for 5 minutes.


Step 5 – While the stew is simmering turn in the ovens broiler to high, if you do t have a broiler turn the oven on 450°F/232°C.


Step 6 – Once the stew is done simmering remove it from the heat and carefully add it into oven safe ramekins or a large oven safe dish. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top and place in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese is slightly golden brown on top. Serve warm.


Tip – If you don’t have a broiler or an oven or would just like to try this, you can fry the cheese in a nonstick pan until crispy and golden brown. You can then use it to garnish the top of the dish as an extra special crunchy treat!
