Cioppino is a hearty Italian seafood stew that became famous in San Francisco. It has a tomato base seasoned with herbs and white wine that brings out the flavour of the seafood without being too overpowering. Our ready-made base takes most of the work out of preparation - you just need to add the seafood and your gourmet meal is complete!
This seafood lover’s dish is beautiful, and it looks like it must be a super labor-intensive to make – but surprisingly, it’s really not.
In a large soup pot, or preferably large Dutch oven, bring the stock to a boil about 20 minutes before serving, lower the heat, and progress with adding the seafood. We love using fresh crab legs, mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops, and chunks of white fish like halibut or cod.
Gently stir into the sauce the clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, and fish fillets. Serve in a wide shallow bowl. Enjoy!
