Not only is this a small batch, but it’s the perfect pantry-version of this recipe. All the ingredients are canned, bottled, or frozen. But, that said, I’ve added fresh fish and seafood before, with great success.

Oil, for sautéing
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1  14 ounce can crushed tomato
1 bottle clam juice
2 small cans chopped clams, reserve liquid
1 small can crab meat, drained
12 shrimp, cleaned and deveined (honestly you can add as many shrimp as you’d like)
1 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon fennel seed
1 cup fresh basil, chopped (a sprinkling of dried basil can be added when oregano is added, if fresh is not on hand)
salt and pepper

sauté onion and garlic in oil until tender
add fennel seed and oregano
add tomato and clam juice, bring to a simmer
add canned crab and clams, heat through
add shrimp, heat through
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle with chopped basil and serve

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
