Seafood Stew

Like it or not, fall is quickly approaching—which means it is time to start preparing for colder weather and warming recipes. Fall is by far my favorite season of the year (strongly influenced by football), and I also love having a hearty stew, soup, or other warm meal to pair with the changing leaves and cooling weather.

This seafood stew is partially inspired by our friend Russ, of the Domestic Man, as he gifted us with some homemade fish stock (UPDATE: get the recipe here) when we last visited. He’s one of our aspirational cook friends (check out our review of his cookbook here), and we wanted to take full advantage of the offering. This stew may be made with a variety of seafood, depending on what is available where you are, and is quite delicious. We hope you’ll take this recipe on and make it your own this fall.
