Delicious! We used some bread to mop up the yummy broth. I used mussels instead of scallops. Delicious and easy!

Wow - yum! And easy to alter to your own tastes. The broth (much chunkier than that not-very-representative-picture) is tasty as-is, but easy to spice up if desired with minimal effort. The seafood preparation is simple enough, and really it would be hard to go wrong if you mix it up a bit and put in the types of seafood that are in season. Quick to make as well. Will be making many more appearances on my table in the future!

Yummy, yummy! Used tilapia instead of snapper and 2 14oz cans of diced tomatoes with basil and oregano. Main change I made was making my own shrimp stock instead of vegetable broth. It's easy. Next time you make shrimp, freeze the discarded shells. Stock takes about 30 minutes to make, but the flavor is wonderful.

Amazing! I couldn't find snapper so I used cod instead. My foodie husband loved it. Definitely a keeper in the recipe file.

This was a fantastic recipe! Made it for a small dinner party and everyone was impressed by the flavor and presentation. I used salmon and it cooked up perfectly. Also added 1/2 tsp more crushed pepper for an extra kick. Note to those who said it wasn't brothy enough, I didn't drain my tomatoes, and it made all the difference. Not sure why the recipe calls for that. I will definitely make this again.

Very yummy. I used tilapia instead of snapper, as I didn't have it. If you love seafood this is for you. Plenty for a full meal. My hubby and I loved it.

Delicious and I agree much chunkier than shown or usual in a cioppino but really tasty. I also changed up the fish a bit, I used cod instead of the snapper and mussels instead of the clams and all was good. I would definitely make this again. Nice enough for company.

Tomatoes to seafood ratial was too high (too many tomatoes, not enough seafood). I also didn't like having the clam shells in the soup/stew. I didn't feel the meal was substantial enough; it needed rice, potatoes or pasta in it, or the cioppino served over it. The taste was okay, nothing special.

After reading the reviews and making it i used less tomatoes and more seafood and it came out wonderful.

Very good. But i like everything seafood. A lot of prepping necessary and because I didn't use fresh herbs, the dried ones were a bit overpowering. Note: if using dried basil and oregano half what the recipe calls for. Added more seafood, Win! But broth was a bit watery would have preferred a thicker sauce. May make again with a bit of tweaking.
