Cioppino 6 Steps

  • Step 1

    Heat a large Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pan on medium heat, add in olive oil as well as the butter. Once the butter has melted add in the diced fenneldiced oniondiced red bell pepper and cook until softened, approximately 8-10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Add in the minced garlic, chili flakes, fennel seeds, bay leaves, anchovy fillets and cook for 2 minutes or until the anchovy fillets have fully dissolved. Deglaze with the white wine, and reduce this by half.

  • Step 3

    Once the wine has reduced, add in the seafood stock as well as cans of crushed tomato, bring to a boil then return to a rolling simmer and cook covered for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking for another 10 minutes uncovered.

  • Step 4

    Maintain the rolling simmer of the sauce, add the clams and cook covered for 5 minutes.

  • Step 5

    After 5 minutes carefully add the remaining seafood, starting with the shrimpscallopslobster tails, mussels and then the halibut pieces. Once again cover with the lid and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until all the seafood has cooked through. Both the clams and the mussels should be open at this point, discard any closed ones.

  • Step 6

    Top with the rough chopped dill and carefully ladle into bowls so as to not break the pieces of fish. Serve immediately with toasted crusty bread and additional chili flakes.
