    Prep Time

  • 10 People


  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 cube Knorr® Shrimp flavor Bouillon Cube(s)
  • 4 ounces cleaned squid, cut into 1/2-in. strips
  • 4 ounces cleaned baby octopus, cut into individual tentacles
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves and stems, about 1 small bunch
  • 4 ounces unpeeled jumbo shrimp
  • 10 mussels
  • 10 clams
  • 12 ounces catfish fillets, cut into 12 pieces

  1. Peel onion, leaving root end intact and cut in half. Cut 1/2 onion lengthwise into 6 wedges. Coarsely chop remaining 1/2.

  2. Heat oil in 2 gallon stockpot. Cook chopped onion with red pepper until onion is just translucent, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in onion wedges, tomatoes, water, Knorr® Shrimp flavor Bouillon Cube(s), squid and octopus. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, loosely covered, until octopus and squid are fork-tender, about 25 minutes.

  4. Stir in chopped cilantro and shrimp and cook 2 minutes. Stir in mussels and clams and cook, covered, until shells open, about 2 minutes. (Discard any unopened shells).

  5. Arrange catfish on top of stew and cook until catfish is opaque, about 2 minutes.

  6. Serve, if desired, with lime wedges.
