Nine years ago we went to Gloucester,Mass for my sister's wedding. While there we ate at a restaurant called Halibut Point. I believe it is still in business. They had a wonderful Italian fish stew there, but won't share the recipe. No place here in SW Missouri serves it. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

Fish stew is all over the Mediterranean with different names, all taking local fish and putting them together in similar but fiercely regional ways.

Elizabeth David is still the expert here...I would heartily recommend her books, they are a delight and an education, and very useful cookbooks!

As she explains here, the French Provencal Bouillabaisse is related to the Italian Genoese Burrida - both fish stews

What's the name of the Spanish or Portuguese version of fish stew? They all seem to be pretty similar but with some different ingredients and spices.

The best Cioppino I've ever had was at the Tadich Grill in San Francisco. A bowl of that with some Sourdough bread is to die for!

The Spanish will add sausage, the Portugese love potatoes - there are many recipes but they all vary, everyone has their twist!

But to make it authentic you'd have to buy the local fish, so you simply can't copy it, just adapt!

This is useful tho...
