Cioppino on a budget... will frozen fish do?

amandine | Oct 20, 2006 06:06 AM

hello all, just stumbled upon a fabulous cioppino recipe. Mom went the whole 9 yards with the seafood she bought-- wouldn't tell me how much it cost but it wasn't cheap at our local Bristol Farms store (halibut, cod, scallops, clams...) DElicious.

I am a student and would love to make it for friends. What suggestions do you have to cut costs? Pick up frozen versions of the above at Trader Joe's? Substitute for less expensive fresh seafood (like what?)?
