I got the idea for this recipe from a dish my friend’s feisty Italian grandmother, Gemma, made. Every time I make this meal—requested frequently by friends and family—I think of Gemma and smile. —Celeste Ehrenberg, Topeka, Kansas
"This zippy chowder is chock-full of shrimp and vegetables, so it satisfies hearty appetites, but the skim milk and reduced-sodium broth help keep fat and calories to a minimum," writes Michelle Conley of Evanston, Wyoming. "It tastes even better the next day, after the flavors have melded overnight."
A roasted red pepper sauce tops this hearty sandwich with a yummy crab filling. Rosalind Pope, of Greensboro, North Carolina says, “with almost no saturated fat, this is light because the mayonnaise has been replaced with non-fat plain yogurt, and it’s served on only half a bun!”
"We like scallops because of their availability here year-round, and they're affordable compared to some seafood," notes Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey. "These scallops are delicately seasoned with roasted tomatoes and can be served over rice or toasted garlic bread."
You'll really like this recipe if you favor crab and shrimp. It's an old family favorite, and it tastes gourmet even though it's so easy to make. All my friends love it!

In Galesburg, Illinois, Sue Mackey simmers a flavorful marinara sauce for most of the day. Then shortly before mealtime, she simply adds cooked shrimp, which merely require being heated through. Served over spaghetti, it makes a delicious dressed-up main dish.
