Thank you very much, Vit, Dawg.

I would rate this dish higher than a clambake. You don't have all those "fillers" like corn and potatoes

I changed my mind. I'm making spaghetti. I have the sauce and meatballs in the crock-pot now.

Pacanis' Personal Pigskin Challenge week-8... Cioppino!
To tell you the truth, this is one dish I never would have made if not for it being invented in San Francisco and fitting so perfectly with my weekly challenge. I love to cook new things though, think outside my box, and inspite of me not being too keen on any tomato based broths or sauces unless they are poured over pasta or called chili, I went for it. And I am glad I did. When the cod, shrimp, bay scallops, crab, clams, mussels and pieces of tomato were gone, along with the chunk of sour dough bread, I had no problem lifting this bowl to my face and finishing off the delicious, simple broth made from butter, onion, garlic, chicken stock, vermouth, water and various spices. I'll be making this again
That looks great, except for the clams and mussels. I love all the other seafood you have in your bowl.

I make another burger with the hamburger I had thawed. I cooked it like a thick steak with bacon and smoked provolone, and made a dipping sauce with feta cheese, ranch dressing and horseradish. I'm stuffed! and I have a small serving left for breakfast with a couple of fried eggs.

Thanks, VB.
I love mussels, clams too, for their texture, but I really love the sweetness of mussels. Plus you get that liquor releasing into the broth.
