We love cioppino and have it often ..
I saute 1 or 2 large chopped white onions and about 6 cloves of crushed garlic in about a 1/4 c of evoo..I just do this til the onion is soft but not browned..I then add 1/2 c. red or white wine what ever is on hand..saute a few minutes and then add 1-tab. each of. fresh oregano,basil and marjoram,parsley ..you can add more basil if you like..I add another round of the herbs after about 20 min if I feel it needs it. I like a more pronounced herb flavor. Then add your tomatoe favorite,such as sauce, chopped,I use 2 cups of chopped tomatoes and then add 3 cups of clam juice ..for fish I add pieces of cod about 2 lbs,let cook about 25 min. and add the rest of your ingredients. I like a rather thick cioppino so that is why the 2 lbs. of cod..You can use less say a pound...then you just add your favorite shell fish, crab, shrimp, oysters, scallops what ever you like...
Hope this will help get you started.
