I made this soup with a shrimp, scallop & calamari mixture. It was so yummy!! The red pepper added just enough spice to it! Can't wait to make it again!!

I make this all winter long. It's incredible. Add 2 T old bay to the finished product and you think you've gone to seafood heaven!

Great soup recipe! Easy to make, and tastes like I spent hours on it. The wine and the scallops add just the right amount of sweetness.

I've made this a few times and it's always great! It's one of those meals that you can have ready when you know that family/friends are coming in to visit, but not sure when.
