Way back when...lol, I used to work for Legal Seafoods and they had the best cioppino I ever tasted. I tweaked their recipe a bit to make it lighter, but it taste so wonderful, it's hard not to eat the whole pot myself!!

How to Make Sherry's lighter cioppino

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil in lg dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion green bell pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring until soft. Stir in tomatoes, wine, ( or broth,) broth, tomato paste, oregano, salt and pepper flakes.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 30 mins. Uncover and add halibut. Simmer for 4 mins. Add clams and mussels. Cover and simmer another 3 mins. Add shrimp. Simmer, covered until clams and mussels open, about 5 mins. Discard any clams or mussels that don't open. Ladle soup evenly into bowls. Sprinkle w/ fresh basil. Serve w/ sliced crusty bread if so desired.
  3. If you want to keep this soup meal light, don't serve with bread. But I find I like to sop up any broth w/ a little of the bread! It's worth the extra calories and carbs! Calorie content is for soup only, not the bread. Calories: 356 per serving
