An original Paladini Cioppino Sauce recipe from the 1890s. A versatile sauce for your favorite combination of seafoods as well as pasta, veal or chicken.
Who better to offer you an authentic Italian Cioppino than Achille Paladini!
Crabs, clams, prawns (shrimp) and other seafoods of your choice simmer in their tomato and herb bath to create not only a tasty, but fun meal. Get the bibs ready and put down two table cloths, because when you start enjoying this old time traditional Italian meal, manners and cleanliness are quickly forgotten! Be sure to always have a jar of Paladini Cioppino / Pasta Sauce in the cupboard. It is a versatile tomato basil sauce not only for all seafood dishes, but also fantastic for all pasta type dishes, chicken, veal, sausages and many other traditional Italian meals. It is a perfect blend of basil, oregano and other spices, hinted with chili flakes for a little bite! It\\\\'s uses are only limited by your imagination. Possibly the finest Cioppino / Pasta Sauce available in stores anywhere!
Heat the Paladini Cioppino Sauce on medium-high heat in a large pot. Add the clams (and if using, the mussels), add white wine, simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring & checking often, when clams (and mussels) open, remove and place into a deep bowl saving any liquid. Add the cooked crab sections, stir to cover with sauce bringing some sauce to the top, simmer covered for 6-8 minutes. Add the clams (and mussels) with all their liquid, the fish pieces, prawns (and if using, the scallops), stir covering with sauce, simmer covered for another 5-6 minutes, add lemon juice and stir again. Place on large deep dishes in equal portions, cover with sauce, garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
"Personally", I like to cook in a seperate pot using another jar of sauce, the fish pieces and prawns (and if using, the scallops), for 5-6 minutes, starting when the crab is heated through, also adding white wine and lemon juice. The fish pieces will not get broken up and It is easier to find these succulent items to serve in equal portions. Serve with fresh sour dough French bread.
