Cioppino is a delicious Italian American fish stew that originated from San Francisco, CA. It usually is made with fresh seafood such as Dungeness crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels, fish, tomatoes and wine. I like to have a variety but really it is what is available at the market since freshness is key for this recipe. This dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser and easily feeds a crowd so gather your family and friends around the table to enjoy! It is very forgiving so feel free to add more or less seafood depending on the number of guests you plan to feed.
