Directions

  • In a large pot (a dutch oven is perfect), heat oil over medium heat and add herbs and garlic. Saute until oil is fragrant, but garlic has not begun to brown.
  • Add onion and red bell pepper and a pinch of salt; cook and stir until tender about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add carrots and potato, cook 5 minutes longer.
  • Heat shrimp stock in a separate pot (if cold, mine was still a little frozen in the freezer).
  • Stir in tomato sauce, and tomatoes (hand crush whole tomatoes).
  • Add shrimp stock, bay leaf and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered for at least 30 minutes (potatoes should be tender).
  • Once the potatoes are tender, stir in shrimp and scallops.
  • Cook, covered, 7 to 10 minutes longer or until shrimp turn pink.
  • Discard the bay leaf.
  • Ladle the soup into serving bowls. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and a dash of Old Bay, if desired.
