I must admit, here in Southern Illinois we don’t get a lot of fresh seafood unless it’s catfish and bluegill from the Mississippi River.  So, eating shellfish is always a treat.  The great thing about this slow cooker seafood stew recipe is that you can use frozen shellfish and just thaw it out.  That way no matter where you live you can enjoy a delicious seafood recipe.

The tomato-based broth in this seafood stew is so tasty and full of amazing flavors.  It’s a great base to start off with in this seafood recipe.  Also, I like to use fresh vegetables whenever I can and they are perfect in this slow cooker stew.  Prep time for the recipe is very minimal.  You will need a few minutes to chop the fresh vegetables and thaw the seafood if you are using frozen shellfish.  Other than a few easy steps to get started, that’s pretty much it.  You just set it and forget.

For my seafood stew recipe, I am using large shrimp that have been deveined and large scallops.  I leave the shells on the shrimp during the cooking process because that’s where a lot of the flavor comes from.  Just make sure to remove the shells and tails before eating.  You could add lobster and crab if you desire.  I recommended using any two pounds of seafood you would like for this stew.  The great thing about stew recipes is that you can modify the ingredients to you likes and needs.  This recipe is hearty and healthy with all the great fresh vegetables and seafood.  A good loaf of crusty bread is what you need for soaking up all that amazing broth.  Yum!

  2. I have never made seafood stew in a slow cooker so I’m looking forward to giving this a try!

  3. Hell.  I am unable to have potatoes what do you think would be a good low carb substitute?

  4. Hi, do you think this would be good with some little ears of corn on the cob in it? Perhaps putting them in the crockpot too?

  5. Hi, thanks for sharing! Do you know the total calories per serving (1 cup?)? Thanks!

  6. Would red peppers be good in this recipe – looking for another veggie to add….or are carrots a better option?

  7. Hi!  This looks amazing.  I have a couple of questions about the shrimp? Are deveined shrimp available with the shells and tails still on?  It looks like your shells have been removed in the picture so I’m wondering if you devein and take the shells off after cooking?  This is probably a no brainer for people but I’m confused.  I really can’t wait to make this though.  Thank you.  

  8. Hello Katie,

    Thanks for this and absolutely loved it! Doubled the recipe for the ALL-CLAD Slow Cooker. Changed it up a bit and added 1.5lbs of fresh wild shrimp and 3lbs of wahoo.

    The deep flavor and spice level was perfect for cold winter day.

    Can fish be used in this?  I have some cod and I would like to know if that work work with this recipe.

  10. You have the calories listed but not the quantity of the serving. How big is a serving ? And can I use old bay spice instead? If so how much?

    • There are about 6 servings in this recipe! I’ve never used old bay spice, but it’s definitely worth a try! Try a little bit and then add more to taste. :)
