You’ll want to cook this dish on coals from wood, so get your fire started in advance of actually wanting to cook the meal. Once the coals are ready to go, place the Dutch oven in the fire pit and coat the inside of the pot with olive oil. While you are waiting for the oil to heat, start chopping the onion, garlic and tomatoes. After five minutes or so, throw the chopped onions, garlic and tomatoes into the pot.

When the onions are brown, add the white wine, lobster stock and tomato puree. At this point, cover the Dutch oven and let it simmer for ten minutes.

After ten minutes, add the fish to the Dutch oven and allow it to cook for five minutes. And last but not least, add the shrimp, clams, mussels and spices; allow this to cook for another nine minutes while stirring the entire mixture. And that’s it, serve in bowls and use a slice of bread to soak up the soupy base!
