Time for another recipe.
I have expressed my love for all things seafood but I can't seem to try something along the lines of seafood stew or clam chowder or anything like that, but I guess I gotta try it sometime. And this recipe sounds absolutely delicious so I couldn't pass up posting it.
I have so many recipes to share with you guys that I have found all over the internet and in all my cookbooks or on tv.
Hopefully you are giving some of these a try!

Bon Appetit!

Rustic Shrimp Stew
Low in calories and saturated fat, shrimp contain heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, tryptophan (an amino acid that helps produce mood-stabilizing serotonin), and vitamin D, which may help provide protection from osteoporosis, high blood pressure, cancer, and many autoimmune diseases.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed, halved, and thinly sliced
2 carrots, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, quartered and sliced crosswise
2 links (3 ounces) each full cooked Italian-style chicken sausage, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup parsley leaves, chopped

1. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat oil over medium. Add potatoes, carrots, garlic, onion, sausage, and cayenne; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are crisp-tender, 15 to 17 minutes.

2. Sprinkle flour over potatoes and vegetables. Stir in broth and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes more. Top mixture with shrimp. Cover and simmer 3 to 4 minutes until shrimp are opaque throughout. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.

Helpful Hint
When buying shrimp, avoid varieties imported from overseas, due to pollution and habitat loss. Instead, look for wildcaught or farmed options from the United States and Canada.

I am really contemplating on giving this a shot tonight and will definitely let you know how this turns out. Sounds heavenly! :) Especially on a cold and rainy day like today.
