Seafood Cioppino Stew

I am a huge fan of seafood stews and soups. Every time we go to any restaurant I always gravitate towards any type of steamy, hot, and ocean-y goodness.  With a few extra hours before The Husband got home, I decided to try this recipe.

As a note, I didn't have fresh shellfish or shrimp so I just used some fresh cod and then canned cherrystone clams and crab meat. Next time, I will definitely plan accordingly and buy some fresh seafood! As you probably see, the swiss chard made another appearance and it was a perfect stew vegetable.  Throw it in right before you finish cooking the stew to preserve its great flavor and texture.

Don't forget to serve with your favorite toasted crusty bread!
