We love this hefty soup on Sundays during football season. For a little extra zip to rally spirits, we sometimes add red pepper flakes or use jalapeno-flavored tomatoes. It's also delicious with real crab meat. —Mary Adams, Fairport, New York

"Delicious hearty soup, I made it exactly as written and loved it!"

"Delicious! I made a larger amount of the broth mixture, doubled the shrimp and the clams and added fresh cod. I also added some Old Bay's Seasoning. Very easy to prepare."

"Good. I altered a couple of things due to what I had on hand, but it had a nice kick to it and went great with fresh oregano bread."

"Oh my gosh! Absolutely delicious! I sub'd an orange pepper for the green one and used 3 cloves of fresh garlic. I also used mild salsa cuz my husband doesn't like spicy foods. In addition to the shrimp, crabmeat, and clams, I added some chopped up calamari. I spiced my own serving up with a little hot sauce."

"I added fresh crawfish, fresh Maryland crabs, and fresh snow crab clusters to mine. Im allergic to imitation crab meat. I didnt have salsa so I just added extra onion, garlic, tomato, and pepper and threw in a little taco seasoning and taco sauce. Also minced up so jalape?os, threw in some potatoes, cilantro (didn't have basil, oreg or parsley) and a few sprigs of thyme."
