This recipe was delicious. I improvised by adding two 6 ounce cans of spicy V-8 juice. I had some leftover that I used and I added medium shrimp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a 6 quart heavy stockpot and add the oil, onion, and garlic. Saute until they are clear, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the seafood, and simmer, uncovered, until the sauce is rich and full-flavored, about 1/2 hour.
  2. Add the fish and shellfish in the order given, giving each variety a moment to cook. The clams will take longer than the squid.
  3. Serve in bowls with hearty bread and a salad.
