Lazy Man's Cioppino

Serves 4

1 lb. Rock Cod (or any white fish)
1 1/2 pounds crab meat, cooked
4 large oysters
8 scallops
8 prawns, shelled and deveined
tomato sauce, below
french bread

Tomato Sauce for Four

1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 small garlic clove, chopped
1 pinch oregano
1 bay leaf
1 pinch sage
2 no. 2 1/2 cans solid pack tomatoes
1 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon sugar

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add spices and cook awhile longer. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, water, salt and pepper and simmer for one hour. Strain before using.

Notes: This is an easy version of the classic fisherman's stew of San Francisco. Simply cook all the fish in the sauce for about 5 minutes and serve in bowls with plenty of french bread. The sauce you can make ahead of time.
