Portuguese Seafood Stew

One of the perks about having a recipe blog is that friends are eager to share their wonderful recipes with me. This recipe was given to me by my friend Don and it was delicious! This is a recipe I will be making again and again. Simple and delicious. You can pretty much use whatever shellfish you like, mussels, lobster, crab, even fish if you like. Serve this with some good crusty bread to sop up the juice.

    In a large heavy pot, saute garlic and onion in olive oil over medium flame for about 2 minutes. Add chorizo, tomatoes, wine, bay leaf, 1/4 cup parsley, salt and pepper and simmer 5 minutes.
