Reviews forSeafood Cioppino
"The crockpot made this cioppino super convenient, but we were disappointed with the flavor. With so many great reviews, I'm assuming something went wrong on my end although I followed the recipe exactly."
"This turned out quite good, and we really enjoyed it. Made almost exactly to the recipe. Just now realized I forgot the crab, even still was very good.The big thing we added, Octopus! Two hours on high, and they were perfect. Husband and daughters said they were soft and easy to chew.The one thing I did, moved soup and octopus into a Dutch oven, onto the stove. I was concerned the fish and shrimp would drop the temp too much, and that the octopus would stop cooking. So, twenty more minutes, slow simmer..and all was perfect.I know I searched all over, wondering how long to cook the octopus, and mostly guessed based on several other recipes. But, 2hrs in the crockpot on high, was great. Could go three I’m sure."
"Wow! This was so good. Lots of flavor and 205 calories per serving. I added some scallops but otherwise stuck with the recipe as written. I served it with garlic toast and Pinot Noir. Can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow."
"I added bay scallops & crushed red pepper flakes to the mix. This was sooo good & even-better, reheated, the next day! I didn't have red wine vinegar, so used more white wine."
"I made this for a family dinner. Due to time constraints had to make the sauce the day before on the stove and then reheated the next day before adding the seafood. Had to use cod instead of haddock and added a small amount of ground red pepper for a little zip. Served with salad and crusty bread. Family loved it.Will definitely make again. Thanks."
"I used fresh plum tomatoes and dry vermouth. I simmered all ingredients except seafood on top of the stove for 1 hour, added the seafood (shrimp and cod only) and simmered 10 minutes more. Excellent."
"I found this recipe in a search for easy crockpot meals. Family voted it a thumbs up terrific. I added a small package of imitation lobster chunks, and a cup of chicken broth because that is what I had on hand. Although another bottle of clam juice or veggie broth would have worked as well I think. I also added a few drops of red hot sauce for additional zip. It was thick like a fish stew, and so yummy. I served with garlic cheese bread, and a salad. Will definitely make this one of my "go to" recipes."
"I made this last night for a girls night dinner. The recipe option for crock pot use was so convenient. I made a few adjustments based on my taste and availability. That being said, I'd bet the recipe is just terrific without any alterations.Adjustments to base: 1 cup of vegetable broth and 1/2 cup of red wine.omitted the red wine vinegar, 4 chopped carrots, t. red pepper flake.For the seafood: cod, a can of baby clams and a dozen fresh mussels. omitted the crab and added 2 T of unsalted butter just before serving.I served it with crusty, warm bread and an antipasti that included olives, marinated artichokes, radishes, celery, yellow peppers, mozzarella with fresh basil oil and raw snap peas.I was outstanding! Cooking the base in the crock pot not only makes the process easier, but allows everything to simmer for hours which incorporates the flavors really well .Adding the seafood in the last 30-40 minutes allows you to create a top notch dinner ahead of time!It's a keeper!"
