2 pounds fish fillets, cut in chunks (cod, haddock, salmon, or a mixture) 
1 small green pepper, seeded and finely chopped 
1 small red pepper, seeded and finely chopped 
3 large potatoes, peeled, cubed, cooked until crunchy, and drained 
3 12-oz cans evaporated milk 
2 pounds mussels in shell, cleaned 
1 cup white wine 
1-1/2 cups water 
1 pound bay scallops 
Salt and pepper to taste
