Heat olive oil in a very large, heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Fry onion and garlic until soft, stirring frequently. Pour in tomatoes and white wine, then season with parsley, basil, salt, pepper and bay leaf.
Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer until liquid is reduced almost completely, about 1 hour.
Add clams, scallops, crab legs and prawns to the pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until clams open. Scoop portions into large bowls to serve.

Excellent stew.....I added green capsicum and didn't cook it down completely so had stock which my family loved. Very tasty and a good way to serve seafood. Definitely a keeper. - 29 Sep 2008

My son and husband loved this. I thought it was a little too salty. We served this over angel hair pasta to make more servings. - 29 Sep 2008
