A few months ago on a grocery run, I picked up a package of frozen seafood medley on a whim...in the back of my mind I was recalling a delicious Seafood Cioppino I ordered when visiting Sedona, AZ with my soon to be husband ☺️
I distinctly remember it being being the first time I had calamari with the tentacles attached (that was pretty creepy floating in my bowl 🐙) , and though a little freaked out initially, down the hatch it went! It was delicious, and it's still one of my favorite foods.
This simple recipe is full of protein, minerals and of course...flavor! It only took about 30 minutes from start to finish to prepare, which is a bonus for those busy days when meal preparation is low on the priority list 🕰
You will need:
1 16 oz bag frozen seafood medley (wild caught)
1 14.5 oz can diced fire roasted tomatoes (Muir Glen) 🍅
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 cube vegetable bullion (Rapunzel)
1 1/2 cup frozen kale and spinach (Costco)
3 cloves garlic
1/2 medium red onion
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1 tsp dried Thyme
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon 🍋 (for wedges to serve on the side)
Putting it all together:
In a large saucepan, place olive oil and roughly chopped onions and garlic on medium heat. Sauté on medium heat until tender.
Meanwhile, rinse the thawed seafood with cold water and check for any shell fragments. Once onions and garlic are ready, add in all of the remaining ingredients...tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, water and bullion cube, seafood, spices and frozen kale/spinach 🍵
Simmer on medium-low heat covered for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. When hot and bubbly, remove from heat, then serve with a lemon wedge and some crispy bread! I made crisps using Flatout Bread ProteinUp Wraps, which I will share in another post! Enjoy this delicious and healthy meal for lunch or dinner, any time of the year!
