Made a small batch of cioppino on the Kamado Joe today. Tossed in salmon, dungeness crab meat, mussels, scallops, squid and shrimp. Alongside some regular ol garlic white bread. Boy am I stuffed, comfort food!

I've made a mean and nasty good paella on the K, but not tried cioppino. One of my favorite means, you knocked it outta the park~!

Thanks everyone.

J-Rod, give it ago with whatever you have on hand. That's kind of how cioppino came to be. The local fisherman just tossed in whatever they managed to catch that day. At times frozen fish can be better than fresh. Look for blast (flash) frozen.

Thanks! In a nutshell it's seasoning, tomato sauce with white wine and a bunch of seafood mixed in. Their is really no 1 way to make it.

I hate salmon, but, that is a good looking cioppino. And since I am from SF Bay Area, that means it is that good. :becky:

Wampus, Cioppino is a San Francisco variation of a seafood stew served in Italy, and it is also closely related to Bouillabaisse. The most common elements are a tomato sauce, heavily seasoned with spices and herbs, and soup thin, it is not thickened. Then seafood is tossed in. There is usually fish and shellfish. In the North Beach area of San Franicisco, where the dish came to fame, that is often small octopus or squid, as those were heavily caught in the bay area ports.

Landarc is right on the money.

A bit of insight in this cool lil video right here, when local legend Phil beat Bobby Flay with his cioppino.
