  1. Use a large skillet and heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic and potato, until soft and tender.
  2. Add crushed tomatoes. Seasoned with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, and paprika.
  3. Add clams and stir. Add clam juice. Cook for 3 minutes. Add shrimps and scallops. Cover with fish or vegetable broth, and let it simmer for about 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. Lower heat and drizzle with wine. Simmer again stirring occasionally for 15 minutes, until clams open and rest of seafood is cooked. Discard any un-opened clams.
  5. Turn off heat and add in lime juice. Top with chopped fresh parsley leaves. Ooops, I missed the toasted piece of bread. Enjoy with extra wedges of lime :)!
