seafood stew

we LOVE seafood.  with the exception of fresh oysters, there isn't a seafood i've met that i wasn't in love with.  so my greedy ass was on facebook and i saw some restaurant in california that serves a platter of all things seafood.  crab legs, mussels, crawfish, shrimp, snapper... you name it!  of course it made me hungry.  i cracked open my fridge and started pulling out all the sea creatures.  but i know damn well i'm not about to stand over this stove, cooking each of these things individually!  that's when i got a genius idea... THROW THEM ALL IN A POT! jo jo's seafood stew was born!
