Expert Tips

Remember when buying any mollusk such as mussels and clams that they should be completely closed, which means they are in good shape.

Blanca Arroyo I still remember the smell of the sea from La Viga market in Mexico City, where our dad used to take us every Sunday, very early, almost at dawn, to buy Sierra fish or Calamari fillet. Since then my love of seafood continued to develop, until it became a true pleasure for me. Nowadays, anywhere I travel I try to learn new recipes with seafood and this is my very personal version of salpicón de mariscos veracruzano (seafood cocktail from Veracruz) and the Colombian and Venezuelan cazuela de mariscos (seafood casserole). Enjoy!

You can accompany with rice or French bread.

You can use canned crabmeat.

Directions

  • 1 Seasoning: In a wide and deep large pot, add oil at medium heat. Add the garlic and onion. Once they start browning, incorporate the red pepper and tomato. Let cook for 10 minutes. When it starts simmering, add the parsley, cilantro, bay leaves, chipotle pepper and salt. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook the seasoning. Once it’s boiling, add the squid, cover and let cook for 30 minutes.
  • 2 After the 30 minutes, increase heat to medium high again and add the rest of the seafood, except for the fish. Mix. Incorporate the fish, olives and capers, stir softly. Cover the pot and cook for another 20 minutes. At this point the mussels and clams should open and that's the key that the seafood casserole is ready.
  • 3 Serve in small bowls and garnish with parsley, cilantro and a lemon wedge, if you like.
