Whenever I say to my husband, “I want to go out for Italian food” he says, “I don’t like Italian.” Well, last night I fed him Italian. He didn’t know it and he loved it. This is my version of a recipe for Cioppino Seafood Pot that is a fish stew that originated in San Francisco, California. It is an Italian-American dish, and is related to regional fish soups and stews of Italian cuisine.  There are many recipes using a variety of seafood and various degrees of tomato base.  You can add other fish such as cod, lobster, bay scallops, etc.  Make it how you enjoy it and serve with a crusty loaf of artisan bread.

      Mary, if you get a chance give it a try. It was the first time I made it (many modifications from original) and it was loved by all. You can use old bay to season and I think it would still be great. So satisfying. No butter necessary.
