I could call this Groundhog Day Fish Stew. Some lessons in life have to be learned over and over and over. One of those lessons is to focus when it matters. What matters a lot in life is whether you use three tablespoons of cayenne pepper or three tablespoons of paprika.
While talking to my wife last night while she and I were preparing dinner, I focused on her and not the stew. Fortunately, I recognized the error before adding the fish.
Re-dicing the celery and the onions felt like Groundhog Day.
The idea for this recipe came from a very unlikely source and needed substantial modification such as leaving out three cups of heavy cream. It turned out to be maybe the best fish stew I have ever tasted. The amounts of fish, prawns, mussels, and clams are up to you as well as the mix of seafood used.
It takes time to prepare --- it is more of a "hang out in the kitchen" weekend dish.
Make all of it and freeze the leftovers taking any shellfish out of the shells.
