prep: 20 mins cook: 45 mins total: 65 mins Servings: 10 Yield: 10 servings


1 cup all-purpose flour

4 celery ribs, diced

1 pound chopped fresh clam meat

1 pound bay scallops

2 pounds cod fillets, cut into chunks

2 slices bacon, cut into small pieces

3 tablespoons butter

½ cup chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)

1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 quart seafood stock

1 tablespoon dried thyme

1 large sweet onion (such as Vidalia®), diced

2 (12 fluid ounce) cans evaporated milk

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

2 bay leaves

2 cups diced new potatoes


Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook and stir bacon in melted butter until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel, reserving drippings in the pot. Add onion and celery to the reserved drippings; cook and stir until the onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.

Stir garlic, thyme, pepper, seafood seasoning, and paprika into the onion mixture. Sprinkle flour over the mixture and stir; cook for 2 minutes. Fold potatoes into the mixture. Pour seafood stock over the mixture. Add bay leaves. Bring the stock to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender and the liquid thickens to your liking, 20 to 30 minutes.

Stir evaporated milk into the simmering stock; add cod, bay scallops, clam meat, and shrimp. Continue cooking the mixture at a simmer until the seafood is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley to serve.
