When I started planning this dish, I was thinking something hearty on a cold winter day. Well, global warming – what are you going to do? But fresh seafood waits for no one. Just a few hints: don’t overcook your seafood. Any veggies will work, and have the potatoes precooked. This is a fairly quick cook and will look like you worked harder than you did. I hope you like it.
