Monday's Leftovers: Seafood Stew

Hoping to steer clear of a hectic Monday night? Consider putting together a seafood stew that makes use of leftover scallops and doesn't require too much attention.

This recipe calls for white fish, scallops, and shrimp, all of which can be purchased frozen and defrosted beforehand — a great way to enjoy the bounty of the sea on a shoestring budget.

Since all the ingredients cook quickly, dinner will be ready in less than half an hour. Make this tonight when you get the recipe.

This is just awesome! I have been searching for a seafood stew for months ever since I dreamed of eating it (yes I have dreams of me eating *lol*). And this is just perfect since I have some shrimp and red snapper in the freezer that I am just dying to do something with. I think I will try this in the crock pot. Wish me luck. I know I need to get some fennel since I rarely eat it.
