…another healthy cooking recipe from the Quick & Healthy Cookbooks

I like the flavor of this easy seafood stew. Don’t limit yourself to just fish. Shrimp, clams, and crab also taste really good in this dish. Perfect for a cold winter day served with a hot roll. This recipe also works well in diabetic menus.

1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes*, not drained
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce*
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup fat-free chicken broth* or white wine
1 tablespoon dried parsley
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon each: dried basil, dried thyme, dried marjoram, and dried oregano
1 bay leaf 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound fish fillets (or cleaned shrimp, clams, crab)

Add all ingredients, except fish, in a medium saucepan. Simmer for 20–30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, cut fish into 1/2-inch chunks. Add fish to saucepan and cook 10 minutes or until done. Discard bay leaf before serving.

COOKING TIP: Use a combination of seafood such as shrimp, clams, and crab. If uncooked, add with the fish. If using precooked seafood, just add to heat.
VARIATION: Italian Cioppino with Zucchini—Add 2 cups sliced zucchini before simmering.
Note: One serving is a good source of fiber.
*Sodium is figured for no added salt/reduced sodium.
