This Cioppino recipe is undeniably a San Francisco original, made famous in the 1850s by Genoese immigrant Giuseppe Bazzuro at his eponymous restaurant. Derived from the traditional ciuppin—which means "little soup" in the Genoese dialect—the dish was originally a puree of cooked vegetables and leftover fish scraps. Over the years, Bay area chefs transformed it into a luxurious stew using local delicacies such as Dungeness crab, as in this version from the city's legendary Tadich Grill.

  1. Heat 1⁄2 cup of the oil and 8 tbsp. of the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, for about 2 minutes. Add carrots, celery, peppers, leeks, and fennel and cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, 4 cups water, bay leaves, oregano, thyme, basil, and cayenne and season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours.
  2. Heat remaining 1⁄2 cup oil, 8 tbsp. butter, and garlic in a large, heavy skillet over high heat until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Working in 2 batches, dredge halibut, scallops, and large and bay shrimp in flour, shaking off excess, and fry, turning seafood frequently, until golden, 1-2 minutes. Transfer seafood with a slotted spoon to pot with sauce, and add crabmeat, cover, and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add wine to same skillet over high heat, scraping browned bits stuck to bottom of skillet. Add clams, cover, and cook until shells open, about 5 minutes. (Discard any clams that don't open.) Add clams and broth to pot; adjust seasonings. Ladle soup into large bowls, garnish with parsley, and serve with toasted sourdough bread, if you like.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and saute. Add bell pepper, then corn to the pan and continue to saute until the veggies are soft, 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Once the mixture has cooled for a few minutes, stir in the cilantro, salt, and cheese. Line a pan with parchment paper or just grease a pan with nonstick spray. Transfer the mixture to the pan. Arrange the top so the zucchini slices lay flat and look nice. Top with a little extra cheese for looks, cover with greased foil, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown the top. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before cutting into slices.
Recipe Notes

It will bubble up a little bit as it bakes, so put a pan under to catch drips if it’s really full. Also, there was a little extra watery-ness (about 2 tablespoons) in the bottom of my pan when I sliced it, but the pieces held together perfectly so NBD. I think the moisture could be prevented by just being a little more patient before cutting.

I sprinkled mine with fresh herbs (parsley and cilantro) like I always do on everything. Basil would also be yummy.

This is an awesome dish in the summer with beans from our garden. Truly almost any vegetable will taste delicious when sautéed in bacon grease. I like to use a good quality bacon when I can find it. Aldi has a new Never Any line of hickory smoked bacon and the label reads: No Antibiotics, No Hormones, No Animal-By-Products, Vegetarian Fed, and No MSG. No nitrates or nitrites added -Except that naturally occurring in sea salt and celery powder. I like to think this is a healthier choice and I also think it tastes delicious.

  1. In a large saute pan, cook your bacon. In the meantime microwave your cauliflower for 4 minutes. Next microwave your Brussel sprouts for 4 minutes. When bacon is done, take it out of the pan, crumble and set aside.
  2. Keep the bacon grease to cook the Brussels and cauliflower. Saute both until soft, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add back crumbled bacon and serve.
Recipe Notes

I’m really enjoying my cast iron skillet these days. It works great for recipes like this. For this Brussels Bacon & Cauliflower recipe, you start with frying your bacon. While the bacon is cooking, you can precook your veggies in the microwave. Brussels can sometimes take a long time to cook when you are sautéing them so I like to microwave them first to speed things up. Once the bacon is done, take it out and use the grease to saute the cauliflower and Brussel sprouts. When they have browned to your liking, add back the crumbled bacon and serve.

Anyone who has been on a low-carb/keto diet will tell you that there are TWO big hurdles in cooking keto. The first one is how to thicken up sauces without flour or cornstarch and the second is how to hold things together (like meatloaf or meatballs or tuna patties). Flour is a natural glue and almond flour…is not. Enter – pork rinds. I KNOW! That sounds gross. BUT the protein in pork rinds acts as a binder and does a good job of soaking up liquid. Plain pork rinds don’t have a super strong flavor and can be mixed into most things. Including these Low Carb Keto Salmon Croquettes with Creamy Remoulade Sauce. It makes flipping them in the pan a much less nerve-racking experience.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the salmon patties except the pecan meal and the coconut oil. Mix together well and shape into 10 patties about 2 inches wide and one inch thick. Pour the pecan meal to a wide dish and “bread” each salmon patty on both sides. Set aside on wax paper lined dish and continue with the rest. In a small food processor, puree all of the ingredients for the remoulade sauce. Taste for seasoning and then set aside. Heat the coconut oil over medium heat until melted. Add the patties in, making sure not to crowd the pan (I can fit 5 patties at a time in mine). Brown on each side for 3-4 minutes or until the pecan crust is nice and browned. Remove to a paper towel to drain and repeat with the remaining patties. Serve immediately with a side of remoulade sauce and lemon slices.

  1. Use a knife to strip the kernels from the corn. It’s easiest if you stand the corn up in a shallow bowl and just cut down the length of each ear as many times as is necessary; you’ll quickly get the hang of it.
  2. Put the oil in a large skillet over high heat. When hot, add the corn, tomatoes, and onions, shallot and garlic (if using); let sit for a moment. As the corn browns, shake the pan to distribute it so each kernel is deeply browned on at least one surface.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then stir in the basil and add feta (if using); serve hot or at room temperature.

  6. Top with a heart cut out or several as desired.
Recipe Notes

This recipe was modified from Nigella Lawson's recipe to work with a crowd. The original called for white country bread, slices and sauteed apples, butter and vanilla. Credit to Nigella Lawson's book Nigella Express and Lori Lange for her changes too.

Our ground beef chili uses 85 percent lean ground beef for richness and flavor. We use only small amounts of pureed whole canned tomatoes and pinto beans to create a thick, rich dish that is best served over white rice and/or with tortilla chips. To keep the meat moist and tender, we treat it with salt and baking soda. Both ingredients help the meat hold on to moisture, so it doesn’t shed liquid during cooking. This means that 2 pounds of beef can be browned in just one batch. We also simmer the meat for 90 minutes to fully tenderize it. Finally, our homemade chili powder uses a combination of toasted dried ancho chiles, chipotle chiles in adobo, and paprika, along with a blend of herbs and spices to round it out. We make sure to stir in any fat that collects on the top of the chili before serving since it contains much of the flavor from the fat-soluble spices in the chile powder.

  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Toss beef with 2 tablespoons water, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and baking soda in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place anchos in Dutch oven set over medium-high heat; toast, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 4 to 6 minutes, reducing heat if anchos begin to smoke. Transfer to food processor and let cool.
  3. Add tortilla chips, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, coriander, oregano, thyme, and 2 teaspoons pepper to food processor with anchos and process until finely ground, about 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to bowl. Process tomatoes and their juice in now-empty workbowl until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  4. Heat oil in now-empty pot over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add beef and cook, stirring with wooden spoon to break meat up into 1/4-inch pieces, until beef is browned and fond begins to form on pot bottom, 12 to 14 minutes. Add ancho mixture and chipotle; cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Add remaining 2 cups water, beans and their liquid, sugar, and tomato puree. Bring to boil, scraping bottom of pot to loosen any browned bits. Cover, transfer to oven, and cook until meat is tender and chili is slightly thickened, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  6. Remove chili from oven and let stand, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in any fat that has risen to top of chili, then add vinegar and season with salt to taste. Serve, passing lime wedges, cilantro, and chopped onion separately. (Chili can be made up to 3 days in advance.)
Recipe Notes

Diced avocado, sour cream, and shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese are also good options for garnishing. This chili is intensely flavored and should be served with tortilla chips, steamed white rice or baked potato.
