1/3 cup medium-hot tomato salsa

1/2 pound sea (large) scallops
3/4 pound (30 to 35 per lb.) shelled, deveined cooked shrimp

In a 5- to 6-quart pan, combine broth, wine, tomatoes and their liquid, salsa, bay leaf, garlic, and saffron. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add clams; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse scallops and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Add scallops and shrimp to pan. Cover and simmer until clams pop open and scallops are opaque but still moist-looking in center (cut to test), 3 to 4 minutes longer. Discard bay leaf. Ladle soup into a tureen or bowls and sprinkle with cilantro.
