How To Make A Seafood Stew

Because the nation is surrounded by oceans on the east and west, it has an abundance of fresh seafood. The fresh flavors are what truly make this stew, so be sure to get quality ingredients. A delicious stew will include large pieces of corn on the cob, carrot, and onion with lobster tail, shrimp, clam, squid and crab. Add the seafood into the broth in the order of required cooking time, putting in the longest cook time first. Feel free to omit or add any type of seafood you please. Saffron broth will give the stew a beautiful color and a distinct Spanish flavor. As the flavors marry while simmering, add salt or pepper to taste. Once the seafood is cooked through you can serve the stew with fresh bread. In this video, Chef Mark gives an easy-to-follow online cooking lesson on how to make authentic seafood stew. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
