cioppino; italian seafood stew

For years I have ripped out recipes from every magazine, marked endless cookbook pages, and printed numerous websites, searching for the best tips on how to make Cioppino, a classic Italian seafood stew dish. This weekend I finally got around to making it…and it was so worth the wait! Three different fishes make it light enough for seconds while hearty vegetables and tomato broth makes it a filling dish. This recipe is mainly adapted from Ellie Krieger’s So Easy cookbook with a few Foodetarian twists. Check out this quick weeknight recipe for Cioppino.

I’m always looking for ways to incorporate more fish into our family meals. Luckily, my toddler absolutely loves fish. It’s light, flaky, and easy to bite down on for his mini teething gums! This recipe is one that ties the seasons together by using fresh summery swordfish and baking them a la meatballs. I found this recipe on the back of one I had torn out (over a year ago!) of my Rachael Ray magazine and altered it a bit. I served them with creamy risotto instead of traditional spaghetti and it was delicious! Here is my version of Baked Panko Swordfish Meatballs.
