Mitch's Fisherman's Stew


Sauté celery, leeks, onion, garlic, and potatoes in olive oil over medium-high heat until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add white wine, Old Bay, and bay leaves; bring to boil and reduce heat to medium low, simmering until wine is reduced by about ⅓, for about 15-20 minutes.

Add tomatoes and simmer until vegetables are tender. Season with Tabasco to taste.

Add clams and fish and simmer gently for about 3 minutes.

Add mussels, prawns, and calamari; cover and gently simmer until mussels and clams are open.  (The mussels and clams should open pretty quickly, so be careful not to overcook the fish, as you are just trying to lightly steam it at this point.)

Ladle stew into 4 bowls, making sure to distribute the seafood evenly.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve with crusty bread and lemon wedges.
