Quick Cioppino for one



Introduction

This is a version of one of my versions of cioppino. Cioppino can be described as a seafood stew or soup and is an Italian dish. There are many different recipes floating around and there is no wrong or right way to do it when you think about it... I just think if you dont add garlic you ruin it ;) -dont forget to laugh! My grandfather was from Italy so there are some italian foods that I can make... This is my version of one that I LOVED growing up. This is a single serving dinner or lunch. It is great when you serve it with toasted whole wheat bread to dip with. It takes just under 20 minutes to make. The calories are low enough that you can add your own little twists for a personal cioppino spin-off of your own! This is a version of one of my versions of cioppino.

Ingredients

    6 ounces of seafood mix (crab.shrimp,surimi,oysters,calamari (squid) that kind of thing- mainly shell fish- I cooked from frozen here which adds water so watch out!)

    1 tsp olive oil

    3 tbsp onions chopped

    3 tsp garlic minced

    .5 tsp of sucralose (splenda for example)

    .25 tsp of salt

    2 tbsp tomato paste

    Water


    Optional: A couple dashes of italian seasoning and pepper before serving are nice...

    Note: If you need to play with your fat allowance for the day this is fine without the olive oil. It will reduce the calories some as well.

Directions

Add olive oil, onion, minced garlic and seafood mixture to a small pot (non stick preferably) along with 5 tbsp or 2.5 fluid ounces of water. Put it on the stove and bring to a boil at high heat while mixing ingredients. Let boil for approximately 2 minutes then add 2/3 cup of water and reduce heat to medium for a "medium simmer". It should basically be reduced to about half as much heat. After a bit the water will begin to simmer with the mixture again. Add the .25 (1/4) tsp of salt and the .5 (1/2) tsp of splenda (I used splenda for baking). Add the tomato paste. stir mixture thoroughly. Continue to cook until seafood is cooked completely (mine was partially cooked yours may take longer or shorter depending on the state of your seafood). I was done with the whole thing in 16 minutes.

This is great when you add a bit of pepper and italian seasoning just before serving. I recommend toasted whole wheat bread as a companion to my little version of cioppino.
