Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1⁄4 cup olive oil
3 medium yellow onions, peeled and chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped fine
2 (1 lb) cans peeled tomatoes, coarsely chopped
4 celery ribs, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1⁄2 cup dry red wine
4 cups water
1 lb whitefish boneless fillets

YOUR CHOICE - PICK 1/2 LB OF SEAFOOD

clam, rinsed
mussels, scrubbed clean and rinsed
crab
scallops
shrimp
squid, cleaned and cut into 1/2-inch circles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat a 6 quart heavy stockpot and add the oil, onion, and garlic. Saute until they are clear, about 5 minutes.
2
Add the remaining ingredients, except the seafood, and simmer, uncovered, until the sauce is rich and full-flavored, about 1/2 hour.
3
Add the fish and shellfish in the order given. This allows the ingredients time to cook. The clams will take longer than the squid.
