A flavoring ingredient that can be added to a mixture of seafood, pasta, veal, chicken, and turkey dishes. A traditional Cioppino sauce is added to a variety of seafood ingredients that become part of a Cioppino stew. Originally made by Italian fishermen working in San Francisco, Cioppino stew combines bits of fish, shellfish and vegetables that are cooked together to become a hearty stew. The sauce was then spread over the prepared food or mixed into it as part of the stew to enhance the flavors. Some of the typical ingredients that may be included in a Cioppino Sauce are: tomatoes, onions, green peppers, celery, burgundy wine or wine vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, sea salts, cane juice, parsley, basil, oregano, black pepper, and red pepper.
