"A wonderfully yummy cioppino without the shell mess when eating. This recipe makes a large pot. It is not cheap but so worth the expense and the leftovers freeze very well."

    This was great! I made this for my son’s birthday, and he has requested that it be on the menu from now on. I didn’t use crab or lobster and doubled the amount of shrimp because it was what I could get locally. The broth is so rich and delicious. Thank you for sharing this excellent (and mess free) stew. I served it with sourdough rolls (take-n-bake) so we could sop up all the fabulous sauce.

    Because it was only for DH and I, I had to make 1/2 the recipe. The broth for the seafood is fantastic and deserves more than 5 stars. I did adjust the seasoning, as you suggested, after it simmered. I added some more thyme and some more Old Bay Seasoning. (Our taste). Even so, the broth for the seafood was amazing. I didn't have Lobster, but, used Shrimp, Bay Scallops, chopped clams and tilapia. When DH says it's great, you know it's a keeper. Now it's our favorite. Thank you very much.
