We love this mildly flavored Italian tomato and fish stew. Although we recommend mussels, you can substitute 6-oz. sea scallops or 6-oz. skinless fish or raw shrimp for the mussels.

Things To Grab

  • 4-quart saucepan or stockpot


  1. Cut fish into 1-to-1-1/2-inch pieces. Discard any mussels that do not close. Cover and refrigerate fish, mussels, and shrimp until needed. 

  2. Heat oil over medium heat in a 4-quart saucepan or stockpot. Add celery and onions. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook and stir 30 seconds. Slowly add broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes.
