This is the most delicious soup ever. ever. well that's certainly not true. but it was super tasty and big E and I didn't waste a drop of this broth, which was the best part. That might have had something to do with the fact that I overcooked most of the seafood. I lost one of my ingredients and while I wandered around my kitchen wondering where in the world I set the peppers, the shrimp and fish were turning into rubber. I think I have a good excuse because it was after midnight. big E and I have been eating dinner together after he gets off work late at night or I should say early in the morning. So for a midnight snack this wasn't bad and it has to be healthier than donuts. That certainly is true:)
Happy Anniversary Friend and Friend's hubby:) I hope you have a wonderful date:)
We saw this made on the Food Network years ago. They don't have it listed anymore on their website. So here it is from my copy.
3 littleneck clams
4 prince edward island mussels
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1/4 cup sliced white onions
2 tablespoons diced roma tomatoes
1/2 cup fish stock or bottled clam juice
3 medium sized shrimp
4 ounces fresh whitefish fillet (grouper, snapper, flounder)
1 tablespoon dry chili puree (ancho, pasilla, guijilb)
3 ounces fresh calamari cut into rings
1/2 cup coconut milik
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Begin with a hot skillet. Saute the clams and mussels for 2 minutes. Then add chopped garlic. Cook for a minute(be careful not to burn the garlic). Then, add onions and tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Next, add fish stock as mussels and clams begin to open. Add shrimp, whitefish and chile puree. Cook for three minutes. At this point add calamari, coconut milk, cilantro. Cook for a minute more and serve in halved coconuts.
We've never followed the directions exactly. I don't think we've ever had all the seafood called for or the dried chili puree. I use fresh peppers and we don't normally measure the other ingredients. You should make it, the seafood, tomatoes, peppers, coconut milk and cilantro taste great together.
