There’s something so comforting about the combination of seafood and potatoes. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love it!
This Seafood & Potato Stew is kind of my happy place right now. It’s comforting, cozy, and even healthy! I used Potatoes USA petite potatoes as the hearty base for this stew, and they were simply perfect.
So creamy and flavorful, they paired so well with the tomato base and chunky seafood.
I love this dish because it’s easy enough to make for a weeknight meal, and good enough to make for a special occasion. Or even better? Cozy up by the fire with a blanket and a book, and a big bowl of this.
You’re heart will be happy.
