The soup fit my current low cal, low carb diet perfectly and I knew by looking at the ingredients that this recipe had to be a winner and it was. What a great flavored soup! I used Knorr shrimp bouillon instead of the shrimp stock and I used a jar of marinara sauce as a substitute for one of the cans of tomatoes. I also added more garlic and a few dashes of hot sauce. Yummm.....the flavors simply danced in my mouth!

I fixed this for our dinner the other night and all I can say is WOW!! I cut the recipe in half used 3/4 of a can of diced tomatoes (28 oz. italian), about 1 1/2 cups of crushed tomatoes and used a piece of sea bass, one tilapia fillet, some shrimp and almost 1/2 a package of Trader Joe's Seafood mix (put shrimp and the seafood mix in towards the end till cooked). I did add a little (about 1/4 tsp.) of fennel seed along with the other spices and followed the rest of the recipe. I did use kale, which we loved because it retains some of its texture and doesn't get mushy. Thank you for another wonderful recipe.

This is very good. My son thought their were too many veggies in it. I think the fennel was a bit much for him. I think I would have liked it better with three 14 oz cans of diced tomatoes instead of 2 28 oz cans. I loved using the broth made from the shrimp shells. And I think the white wine is a good choice. A lot of the recipes call for red wine and I think that would be way too overpowering. I used haddock as the fish and it was very nice. I think jumbo shrimp would be the best choice. I used large and they shrunk quite a bit.

This stew is delicious. Don't let the long list of ingredients put you off from making this dish - it is well worth it. We put cod in ours but think tilapia would be better. We put absolutely everything in it - including the anchovies - and it was delicious. We served this over rice and it was perfect.

Made half the recipe last night and it was quite good. I followed the recipe exactly and would make it again. Next time, I will cook the shrimp shells a little longer to intensify the flavor. Thanks for sharing!

Just made this last night on request for my Italian boyfriend who said he loved Zuppa Di Pesce. Honestly I was not even sure what that was when he first asked. Well I must say this soup was over the top fabulous! I made it to the T as directed! My boyfriend said it was the best soup he had ever tasted and ate 3 bowls! I just had some left over a minute ago and wow it really is so good! Thanks for this recipe I will make it again for sure! :-)

Outstanding 5-star recipe! I made this exactly as written except using white button mushrooms instead of shiitake. Also, I didn't realize until we were eating I forgot the seafood mix, which I got specifically for this dish! Oh well, it was great without it, and now this gives me a reason to make this again soon! :)

Delish! Made for a dinner party for 8 people. There was plenty. I don't know if it would have fed 15, but certainly 10 because we have a nice bowl of leftovers for tonight. I have made many a cioppino over the years, but I think this is my favourite recipe so far. Sometimes there just isn't enough in this dish aside from fish and tomatoes. This recipe has such a nice blend of flavours. Don't be tempted to leave out the fennel, I think it's one of the best parts!! I did leave out the shiitake and anchovies just because I didn't have any. I made the sauce in the morning, and then left it in the crock pot all day to 'stew'. Put it back on the stove with the seafood and fish about 40 mins before serving. Pull out your big pot for this one, you'll need it! Thanks Rita!

This was sooo good! I did not use the anchovies or the fennel (couldn't find it), but did everything else the same. Loved it! I'm sure the leftovers will be even better.
