A recipe this simple has many advantages. It's fast, easy, and doesn't require a ton of prep, but the downside is, there's nowhere to hide subpar ingredients. So, unless you're going to splurge on the freshest, sweetest, most pristine seafood you can find, you may want to look for another recipe. Serve with crusty bread on the side.
Recipe Summary test
You can use fresh tomatoes instead of canned; toss in a teaspoon of sugar if they aren't sweet enough. Also, feel free to use fish stock or clam juice instead of water.
Be sure your brothy base is aggressively seasoned before you toss your seafood in, since we don't season the fish and shellfish directly.
Any firm white fish will work, such as halibut or cod.
