  • 1 tbsp organic unsalted butter
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 bulb fennel, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 red chile pepper, seeded and 
thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp each dried oregano, thyme and basil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 28-oz BPA-free can diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup clam juice
  • 1 lb littleneck clams, scrubbed
  • 1 lb frozen cooked crab claws
  • 1 lb cod, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 lb sea scallops
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf

  1. In a 5-qt slow cooker on high, melt butter. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally until onions soften slightly, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add celery, fennel, chile, oregano, thyme, basil and cayenne; stir to combine. Add wine, tomatoes, broth and clam juice. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, soak clams in cold water for 20 minutes.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer clams to slow cooker; discard water. Cover and cook until clams are open, about 20 to 25 minutes. Discard any unopened clams. Add crab claws, cover and cook until heated through, about 10 minutes. Add cod and scallops. Cover and cook until fish is firm and opaque and flakes easily, about 10 minutes longer. Sprinkle with parsley (if using).
