Shrimp and Scallop Stew Recipe

Yesterday I promised I would post this recipe for Shrimp and Scallop Stew. Peggy found it at a great website I added a bit more ground red pepper, and some Tapatio Mexican hot sauce to give it some extra heat; then served it with artisan sourdough bread for dipping. Enjoy!
