Main dish

Cioppino

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 cups frozen chopped onions

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1 tablespoon Italian herb blend

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes

Freshly ground pepper

2 cans (16 ounces each) diced tomatoes, with their liquid

1/3 cup red wine or to taste

3 fillets firm fish (12 ounces total), such as mahi-mahi, cod or halibut, cut in chunks

1 jar (6 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained, coarsely chopped

1 can (6 ounces) all-white crabmeat

8 to 12 frozen cooked shrimp, tail removed, optional

1 teaspoon sugar, optional

Chopped fresh parsley

Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat; add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, herb blend, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes and pepper to taste; cook until mushrooms are softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and wine; heat to a boil.

Stir in the fish, making sure pieces are submerged; lower heat so mixture remains at a slow boil. Cook until fish is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in roasted red peppers, crabmeat and shrimp, if using. Heat until warmed through, about 3 minutes. Taste; if stew is too acidic, stir in sugar. Serve, topped with parsley. Makes 4 servings.
