Portuguese Cioppino

 

Cioppino originated in San Francisco and is usually made from a mixture of the day’s catch, which can be any combination of crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid mussels and fish. The seafood is then combined with wine in a tomato based sauce, and served with toasted bread for soaking up the rich, delicious broth.I used a Portuguese white wine and added some Portuguese dry-cured sausage to our cioppino and we enjoyed it very much. While I used haddock, you can use any hearty fish you enjoy. This dish comes together very quickly so it can easily be used for a weeknight meal yet is still elegant enough to be used for intimate social gatherings and date-night dinners. Enjoy!
