My February Throwdown Dish Recipe

Thread Starter 
Cold Smoked Cioppino aka Zuppa Di Pesca.

Cold Smoked Cioppino with Anchovy and Tomato/Clam based broth including Shrimp, Calamari, Bay
Scallops, Langostino Tails, Oysters, Clams and Cod.

I started with 64 oz of picante clamato tomato juice, 12 oz of tomato paste and a small tin of anchovies in
olive oil. i put the anchovies with oil and a bit of the clamato in my small food chopper and made a puree. Got
that going in my dutch with the rest of the base ingredients on the burner. I added 1 1/2 cups red wine. 4 tbs
of red wine vinegar, 1/8 cup evoo, 10.5 oz jar of pequillo peppers chopped up, and some salt and pepper just
a little to start. I then added some onion and red, yellow and green bell peppers, just a little. Fresh chopped
garlic, rosemary, thyme, dill, and taragon also made the pot. I cold-smoked the fish and seafood for two
hours with a mixture of apple, cherry and maple chips. They dont look like they took on much smoke but I
taste tested along the way and they did take on quite a bit of smoke without being overpowered. Last step
was to bring the ingredients together and cook until the clams opened up. I pulled it from the heat and served
with some asiago cheese bread with butter and some dried herbs. I will be making this dish again.

Very Nice Dish. Is the cod from Sam's club? Looks like those frozen fillets they sell in the bags. I find them to be a great product and purchase all the different kinds they offer.

Yes those are frozen vacuum packed, I got them at Smith/Krogers. Actually all the fish and seafood was frozen except the anchovies and oysters. I think it worked out better to keep it out of the danger zone while smoking.
