Fish soup

Fish soup is a dish that always pleases everyone, and is good all year round and on every occasion.

Fish soup is a tasty way to enjoy what the sea has to offer. It can be done with practically any variety of fish that you can find at the fish market, but the rule to follow in any case is only to choose the freshest fish possible.

For example, we have chosen to use monkfish, monkfish and also add cuttlefish, prawns, mussels and clams. Everything is then seasoned and accompanied by tomato .

This soup is perfect if accompanied with freshly prepared croutons, so that it becomes a real single dish, complete with proteins and carbohydrates .

How to make fish soup

  1. First of all we have to prepare the fish and clean it well (if you can, let your trusted fishmonger do it for you). Remove the head, fins and innards from the hens (or hens). Also clean the monkfish by removing the skin and the thorns and the cuttlefish, depriving them of the internal sac.
  2. Once everything is cleaned, cut the monkfish and the cuttlefish into small pieces, instead the tub gurnard into fillets.
  3. Clean the prawns by removing the head and exoskeleton, then remove the black fillet of the intestine and set aside.
  4. In a separate pan, open the mussels and clams (well purged and cleaned) simply with a drizzle of oil, a little pepper, salt to taste and parsley . Once they are open, set them aside in a bowl and strain the cooking liquid.
