Pretty Good, But Kind of Bland
I was not able to follow the directions exactly, so this might account for the somewhat bland taste. I doubled the recipe so I would have leftovers. I had to buy frozen scallops because they were the the only thing available. The stew was filling, and it wasn't bad, but it was also kind of bland. I think part of the problem was adding water to it. The water was necessary for the texture, but I think it literally "watered down" the taste.
If I make this again, I will definitely be adding some extra spices and seasonings, and I think I will use canned tomatoes with the juices instead of adding water.
Pros: Easy to make, relatively quick, filling
Cons: Tasted a little bland
