24 mussel, scrubbed and beards removed

Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it's tender.
Add the wine and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the broth and tomatoes and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Add the mussels, fish and shrimp. Cover and cook until the mussels open, the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the shrimp are cooked through. Discard any mussels that do not open. Season as desired.
