Delicious Shrimp Stew Recipe

The tasty shrimp stew contains halibut and crab meat so this is a nutritious and delicious stew to enjoy all year round. There are a lot of ingredients for this stew, but don’t be put off by that as the preparation is easier than a lot of dishes we’ve looked at with far fewer ingredients.

Ingredients:- Half a cup of olive oil- 1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)- 1 medium onion (chopped)- 2 green onions (chopped)- 1 green pepper (chopped)- 1 can of diced tomatoes- 1 can tomato paste- 1 and 3/4 cups of red wine- 1 tablespoon of parsley- 2 plastic spoons of oregano- Half a teaspoon of basil- 2 teaspoons of salt- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper- 3/4 of a cup of water- 1 and a 1/2lbs of halibut steaks (cut into small pieces)- 1/2lb of raw shrimp (shelled and de-veined)- 2 packs of crabmeat (about 6oz, and if you buy frozen make sure you thaw it fully before using)

What you need to do:

The biggest part of this recipe is preparing all the seasoning and flavors that go into the stew, the meat doesn’t take any preparation at all as long as the shrimp has been shelled and de-veined of course.

So grab a large soup pan or something similar and pop it onto a medium heat with the olive oil in. When the oil has heated up then add in the garlic, all the onion and green pepper, and then tenderize that by cooking it for 5 – 10 minutes until it starts to soften and brown a bit and all the lovely flavorsome juices come out of it (yum!).

Now put in the tomatoes and the tomato paste while it is still on the medium heat and stir it all together, then slowly add the red wine making sure you stir it well as you add it. After that you can add in the parsley, oregano, basil, salt and pepper to really give it some flavor.

Add the water to that mixture, give it a good stir and then while still stirring bring it to boiling point and then reduce the heat down and let it simmer without a lid on for a minute so it all stews together. Finally add al the meat into the mixture and give it a good stir so you don’t get any clumps of meat, then cover it with a lid and simmer it for 15 minutes, then remove the lid and simmer it for a further 15 minutes.

That should hopefully be ready to eat after that, but if you are unsure at all then make sure you cut open some of the meat and see if it is cooked right the way through, you can never be too careful with seafood! There I told you it was easy, now you have tasty seafood stew to enjoy.
