ingredients

directions

  • 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.
  • Add the fish and shellfish in the order given, giving each variety a moment to cook. The clams will take longer than the squid.
  • Serve in bowls with hearty bread and a salad.

    This was super yummy even though I used tilapia (I truly don't like tilapia but I tried it yet again--and while the soup didn't redeem the fish, the fish didn't ruin the soup). The cayenne adds just enough after-kick without knocking this bland girl on her butt. I used four fillets of tilapia, small pre-cooked shrimp, two 14.5oz cans of italian diced tomatoes (what I have on hand), and only one teaspoon of salt. This soup was met with approval by the children. Future renditions will be attempted with flounder, more shrimp, and replacing some of the water with stock for extra richness. Many thanks for a keeper!

    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.
