Restaurant Name: Mijo's BBQ
Our Vision: To make as much money as possible so I can afford the $2000/mo rent and $4/gal gas. It is also our goal to become rich and famous so maybe someday I can meet Giada DeLaurentes and see for myself, in person, if her head is really that big.
Today's Dish: Cioppino
Price: $9.99 (Does not include fines and taxes)***
Description on Menu: Dungeness Crab Cioppino served with Sourdough Garlic Bread and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
History: Cioppino is a San Francisco regional seafood dish started by Itialian fisherman in the late 1800's. The dish usually includes all sorts of seafood such as crab and shellfish in a tomato based sauce. Typically the words "cioppino" and "barbecue" rarely go together but if there is one thing us Californian's like to do (besides drive 100mph through school zones) it is taking a perfectly delicious dish and finding a way to make it even better with live fire! With the beautiful weather and abundance of seafood I felt there was nothing better to represent California in a throwdown than Cioppino! Welcome to my new restaurant, have a seat, and your dinner with be served shortly.
First we start with getting a little manzanita wood smoke on the tomatoes as the foundation for our sauce.
We clean and prep our muscles, clams, and dungeness crab:
Time to get the onion, garlic, and diver scallops going:
After the tomatoes are deskinned we add to the skillet with wine, clam sauce, and red pepper flakes. The crab and shrimp get on the grill. We do not cook the shrimp all the way as they will finish in the sauce.
Once all of the shrimp, clams, muscles, scallops, and crab are added to the pot we cook until everything is done and serve.
Here is my entry for the Throwdown:
