    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6


    soup pot

    Units: US | Metric

    Any or all of the following


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

      This recipe was delicious. I improvised by adding two 6 ounce cans of spicy V-8 juice. I had some leftover that I used and I added medium shrimp.

      Made for the Greek Kid-Friendly challenge & I also was a big Jeff Smith fan way back when. This is so easy-to-make that my 9 yr-old assistant (Kata) proudly played a major role & 4 of us enjoyed the outcome. I made 2 sml chgs that I do not feel disturbed the heart of your recipe: I used fresh tomatoes & I added Old Bay as a pers pref. I used cod, baby shrimp & lump crabmeat for the seafood. Served it w/crusty rolls & it was great! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us & Kata says thx too. :-)
