    Roasted Halibut with Shellfish Cioppino

    Cioppino is a classic seafood stew whose origins can be traced to the Italian fishers of San Francisco. And unlike many fishermen’s stews that are thick and tomato-based, this one relies on fish stock (or clam broth) and just a hint of tomato, plus the unmistakable flavors of fennel and crushed red pepper flakes, to create a gently perfumed, aromatic broth with a bit of a kick. The final crowning touch is the addition of one of the Northwest’s iconic fish, fresh halibut, which perches atop the cioppino.

Preparation and Cooking Tips

Choose smaller squid with clear eyes and moist flesh. For quick cooking, smaller squid is more tender than the larger ones. Start cleaning the squid by pulling out the tentacles from the main body. Do not incude the beak and then trim the long tentacles level with the rest. After cleaning the squid thoroughly, you can now cook the squid. The most popular method of cooking squid is frying also known as calamari.
