Cioppino

The origin of this famous San Francisco specialty is open to speculation. Most locals believe it is related to the Italian cacciucco, a fish stew of Livorno, and to the fish stews of the Friuli region, which are made with red wine. Serve with grilled coarse country bread rubbed with garlic.

Easy and Satisfying
March 2, 2013
Fantastic! Easy and delicious. I live in a landlocked area, so the seafood was the primary cost factor. That said, it was still a sensible indulgence. I used the Williams-Sonoma Fish Stock Concentrate to further speed the process and allow for more balance and freshness than a bottle of clam juice would have yielded (fish fumet/stock is not difficult to make, but who wants to if they don't have to?) I will make this again, enthusiastically!
Pros: Yield, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Cost

Mamma Mia, so good!

This is a great recipe. It is almost like Lidia's but better. The secret ingredient is ground fennel, don't omit it--it imparts a flavor that elevates the dish and makes it sing. I must admit that I discovered a great jarred sauce, which is like my homemade sauce; you pay more for these better brands, but it has authentic taste. Don't even think about using inferior sauce. Add crusty bread and a salad, and you're good to go. I make this at least 2x a month. You can start the first steps early in day and finish it off at dinnertime.
