  • 9 littleneck clams, cleaned
  • 1⁄2 lb. fresh cod fillets
  • 1⁄2 lb. medium peeled shrimp
  • 4 crab legs
  • 1 small onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced

  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper

  • Clean clams and cut cod fillets into 1-inch pieces. Rinse shrimp and crab legs. Combine onion, garlic, tomatoes, and clam juice in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil.
  • Add wine. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until onion and pepper are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil.
