  • 1 ½ cups peeled and cubed potatoes

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 medium onion, cut in half and thinly sliced

  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste

  • 1 (16 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • 1 cup fish stock

  • 10 ounces white fish, cut into small chunks

  • 1 pound clams in shell, scrubbed

  • 10 ounces uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 8 ounces cleaned calamari, sliced into thin rings

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and crushed red pepper. Cook and stir until onion is soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.

  3. Increase heat to medium-high and add tomatoes, reserved potatoes, and white wine. Bring to a simmer. Cook, breaking the tomatoes up with a spoon, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour in fish stock and return to a simmer.

  4. Add white fish to the pot, nestling the pieces down into the broth. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Add clams, shrimp, and calamari. Simmer until shrimp are pink and clams have opened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove and discard any unopened clams.

  5. Turn off the heat and stir in basil, parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest. Ladle into bowls to serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can use shrimp stock, clam juice, or water instead of fish stock.

Use any fish of your choice, I like to use yellowtail.
