Mixed Seafood Stew

This is a stew which originated in San Francisco called cioppino. It's wonderful served with crusty bread for mopping up the lovely juices.

Star Pooley's ciopppino is wonderful as it is, and a great jumping off point as a base for customizing this wonderful stew. Here is El Paso, most people appreciate a little spice and Star's cioppino takes nicely to a "t" or a "T" of crushed red pepper. I too added salmon and cod, along with "frozen seafood mix" from the local market (contains octopus, squid, and mussels). My current batch on the stove right now is made with fish stock (just boil a whole fish), red wine and 4 garlic cloves. This batch is about 50% larger than Star's recipe and I tracked the cost at $60.05 for 10 quarts. This cost included $15 for a pount of picked-over blue crab (Sam's Club). A little pricey but only $6/serving for a main course and big eaters... along with a wonderful crusty french loaf. Gracias amiga!

This was a truly wonderful recipe. Better than I have had in many restaurants. I would recommend using salmon instead of the cod though.

I don't normally like fish soup - I think it's something to do with texture! But this was really tasty. All I had to put in it was canned crab, a bit of frozen shrimp and some cod but that was enough. I also added a few potatoes to make it more substantial but other than that I stuck with the recipe. I liked it because it wasn't too tomato-y. It had tomatoes in it but it wasn't tomato based. Everyone who ate it loved it. Keeper!

I have made this dish on several occassions! You just can't get enough of it! I substitute the clams for mussles not a big clam fan... otherwise this is a 5 star dish~

The only reason this didn't get 5 stars was because of the price. It's not a cheap dish, but it was absolutly amazing. I used sole instead of cod, but really you could use any combination of sea food. Really rich flavor, couldn't eat a big serving. Served the leftovers with angel hair pasta, it was way better this way. Worth making if you are out to impress.

Didn't use chicken broth, instead used celery sauce, i think thats what its called, and about 3 cups of water with it. Still came out superb, ended up with leftovers.

This recipes was fantastic and very easy to make. I substituted a nice piece of lobster and I added the cod fillet instead of the mussels and crabmeat. Though I might just add everything next time. Everyone Globbbled it up. This is a keeper. Thanks Star for submitting this recipe
