    Mediterranean Swordfish Cioppino

    Tonight I made a cioppino from Great Bowls of Fire. I love the combination of the swordfish and the shrimp in the tomato and fish-stock based broth. The recipe calls for a quarter cup of dry red wine — the one we used was so dark it almost gave the broth a purplish hue!

    Chris says:

    I loves me some cioppino! This is one of those GBOF recipes that you don’t really notice the heat.

    Lisa says:

    It tastes really good. Hmm, did you butterfly the shrimp?

    Chris says:

    Yeah, why?

    Lisa says:

    Makes it look like calamari or body parts or something.

    Chris says:

    Well that sounds appetizing; let’s eat!
