Add the crab, clams, mussels, salmon, halibut and shrimp. Cover the pot and cook until the clams and mussels have opened, shaking the pot gently a few times, 5-7 minutes. Add the vermouth and cook for 1-2 minutes, then add the tomato sauce, diced tomato and fish stock. Cover and simmer gently until the sauce has thickened slightly, 5-7 minutes. Remove the lid, add the tuna, basil, oregano, parsley and a good pinch of salt and pepper, stirring them gently into the cioppino. Ladle immediately into shallow bowls distributing seafood as evenly as possible. Serve with bruschetta.
