    IJustThrewItTogether's Note:

    I got this out of the Washing Post Food Section prior to Christmas 2002. It is very filling so plan accordingly. Looks daunting but if you mix all the spices from the sugar down until the bay leaves prior to starting, it goes quickly.

      Delicious. Great detailed and easy to follow directions. I added a fennel bulb, 1lb of scallops, doubled the clams and added about 1.5 cup of fish broth because I did not have enough liquid to cover all the seafood added. Garnished with fresh lemon slices and hot sauce. It was a large pot of yumminess. We had it for Christmas Eve dinner and it was loved by all. Next time I will add some red bell peppers. Thank you for a great recipe.

      Amazing! I ate ciopinno the last time I was in Seattle and I have been looking for a recipe to match it. This is pretty close. I added scallops, crab and more garlic! I also left the mussels, crab and clams in their shells because when I had it in Seattle, all the seafood was left in its shell and it was a nice presentation.
