Seafood Stew (Deniz Ürünleri Yahnisi)

For almost a year, I have been sitting on some seafood recipes that are not necessarily traditionally Turkish, but may be with Turkish/Mediterranean seasoning. Finally, I got a chance to publish them which will be in a consecutive order. A few more seafood recipes exist in my repertoire that need to be polished. At the same time, here are the ones that are ready to be published.

In addition, I will be busy these days, so I may not respond to your comments or questions immediately. However, I will still be posting new recipes and checking my e-mails and comments as much as I can, since I really enjoy reading them.

Now about the recipe…If you like to indulge in seafood, this is the perfect meal that comprises of different types of seafood in one pot. If you desire, you may add a few other seafood such as scallops or calamari to the recipe. You may also adjust the spices to your liking as it may be too spicy for some. Enjoy with a nice piece of bread or pasta.

1 lb mussels
1 lb clams
1 lb shrimp (cleaned and devined)
¼ cup olive oil
4-5 bay leaves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 cup white wine
1 cup water
Dill for garnishing (optional)

Wash the mussels and clams with cold water thoroughly and discard the opened shells. Heat olive oil on medium heat in a large pan. Place the mussels and clams with the salt and all the spices. Let them cook for two minutes. Then, add the shrimp, wine and water. Let it simmer for 4-5 minutes. Garnish with dill. Enjoy with just bread or pasta.
