My favorite fish to use in this is red snapper. But any firm fish will work. Smells and tastes yummy.

This is a wonderful tasting cioppino. We used cod fish fillets and it was so tasty. Thanks for posting this recipe.

My husband cooked this one tonight and we both really enjoyed it. He put in about a teaspoon of red pepper flakes because we like spicy food. Next time we have this we will use just 1 lb. of the fish and add more shrimp, but that is just a personal preference.

So delicious and flavorful. I doubled the red peppers (we love heat) and used white wine with cod. Fantastic. Try NurseDi's Shrimp Vindaloo recipe #92346, it's just as excellent as this! Thanks NurseDi!
