“I saw this recipe made on 30 Minute Meals. These shrimp and scallops in the light tomato broth are delicious. I've even made this without the saffron (with a touch more garlic and spice) and it was still full of flavor. I substitute vegetable broth for the chicken, but feel free to add it back if you prefer.”
