RECIPE: Cioppino

becky_caFebruary 6, 2007

My DH went on a dive trip over the weekend, and came home with a big lobster, a couple of crabs and a bunch of rockfish. So we made cioppino, and it was good enough to share the recipe :-)

I adapted this recipe from one at - have left the seafood as they called for it, but I think you can use just about anything that's fresh. We steamed the crabs and lobster tail, then added the meat to the stew. I bought some shrimp and put it in with the rockfish. I don't like mussels, so I was just as happy to leave those out.

Enjoy -

Becky, I love Cioppino (Seafood Stew) and your recipe is similar to mine, the white wine is a must isn't it? I add a bottle of clam juice and I love salmon or halibut in it too.
This makes a perfect Winter meal with the warm, crusty bread like you say. I served it for company once and they went nuts for it.
