  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves - minced
  • 3 cups or more bottled clam juice
  • 1 15-ounce can white hominy, drained, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 cup salsa verde - tomatillo salsa, medium or mild
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lime peel
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb littleneck clams
  • 1 lb small mussels
  • 1 pound uncooked jumbo shrimp - peeled, deveined
  • 1 pound large sea scallops - halved horizontally
  • 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro - divided

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add garlic; stir about 30 seconds.
  • Add onion; sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add 3 cups clam juice and next 5 ingredients to skillet; simmer 5 minutes. Everything except the shellfish.
  • Add clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, and 3 tablespoons cilantro to simmering broth, adding more clam juice to thin if necessary. 
  • Simmer until seafood is just opaque in center and clams and mussels have opened - about 5 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Divide among bowls; sprinkle with remaining cilantro.

Notes

This is so good.  I like to add red pepper flakes to mine and a pinch or more of cayenne pepper.  Serve your favorite Mexican hot sauce on the side.
This can be served as a starter or as a main course.
