Some people are not fond of clams and mussels and Alvin is one of them. Shellfish can play a healthy part in our diets because most of them (except shrimps) are low in cholesterol. They are also good sources of protein. Alvin is very much aware of these health benefits so he tries his best to get used to the peculiar shellfish taste. In this menu, you can use sea bass, pomfret, cod, halibut, red snapper, sole or even tilapia. This seafood stew is great for family dinners and is easy to prepare and cook!
