Cioppino Recipe



olive oil

½ onion, chopped

3 stalks celery, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced or put through a plane

4 large cans diced tomatoes

salt, pepper and dried oregano to taste

1.5 lbs deveined prawns, shells on (for flavor), heads off (my preference)

1.5 lbs live mussels (should be closed; store in a bowl on top of ice until ready to use; be sure to remove water as ice melts)



Sautee onion in olive oil in a large dutch oven on low, until soft and almost clear.  Add celery and continue to cook until soft.  Add garlic and cook for about a minute.  Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and oregano; heat to a slow boil.  Add prawn and mussels.  Cover and simmer for 4 hours.


Serve with spaghetti, rice or no carbs, whatever you like.
