Seafood Posole

September 25, 2014


Author Notes: I saw this recipe in an issue of Bon Appetit and I immediately wanted to make it. I absolutely LOVE hominy. It’s so wonderful to put in chili, or even better, quesadillas. I just love its bite and chewiness.

I made a few tweaks to the recipe. Trader Joe’s makes a lovely frozen Seafood Blend. It has shrimp, scallops and squid rings. I was not sure how this major substitution would play out, but it definitely streamlined the recipe. And, it could not have tasted better.

Their were no leftovers. Everyone had seconds.
