Grab a bib! Cioppino can be messy because the shellfish is served in the shell. The cod, mussels, shrimp, crab claws and wine make this rustic soup really special. And it’s ready in 15 minutes.
If you’ve never had it before, Cioppino is an Italian American soup that originated in San Francisco. It typically contains some kind of white fish and loads of shellfish still in the shell. You’re going to need extra napkins with this because it’s messy to eat. But so fun!
Cioppino also contains wine. I’ve seen recipes with red wine and some with white. I like to go with red because it really boosts the tomato flavor in the broth. Then the soup is typically finished with fresh herbs. Either basil or Italian parsley or both.
