Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 30min

  1. In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onion, green pepper, turmeric, and paprika and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes.
  2. Using a long spoon, push the onion mixture to the sides of the pot, add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is browned, about 3 minutes.
  3. Push the sausage to the side of the pot and add the garlic; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, broth, and 1 cup of water.
  4. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, broth, and 1 cup of water.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, strain the slams over the pot so only the liquid from the can is added.
  6. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  7. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the potatoes are just soft when tested with a fork, about 8 minutes.
  8. Add the clams, shrimp, and peas.
  9. Cook until the shrimp just turn pink, 2 to 4 minutes; don’t overcook.
  10. Stir in the parsley and serve with the lemon wedge.
