Seafood Stew Recipe

Fillets of Gilthead Dorado with clams vognole

We've refined this yummy Seafood Stew recipe over the years until we now feel that it's just about perfect. It's really simple to make and doesn't use a huge number of ingredients.
For the fish fillet part we have used Gilthead, a delicious white fleshed Fish which is widely available around the Mediterranean. It's known as Dourade in France, Orato in Italy and Dorado in Spain. All the names reflecting the Golden colour around its Head.
For the Shellfish we chose clams, almejas here in Spain, vongole in Italy and haricot de mer (Sea Beans) in the South of France.
You can follow this recipe to the letter and you will have a wonderfull Seafood Stew, or change anything you fancy - everyone has slightly different tastes and preferences. Another delicious Mediterranean Diet recipe.
