    I made this but without the booze or coriander (because i didn't have any) and used bouillon power for the stock, which was a bit on the salty side but we loved it and I'm making it again tonight. Served it with some brown rice.  -  15 Jun 2017


    This is a delicious soup. I used chicken broth and still added a bouillon cube, which gave a richer flavor. Cut back 1/2 on the red pepper since my husband doesn't like too much "hot" and added 1/2 lb of scallops as well. Didn't have fresh cilantro so used dried in moderation. I used a good quality rather dry white wine as the sherry adds enough sweetness. Thanks  -  03 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this last night- it was fantatstic. I added fresh chopped clams, extra cod and a can of sweet corn. I kept the cilantro to a minimum because I am not a big fan, and the stew still had unbelievable flavor. Thanks for the recipe!  -  13 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
