This soup is ideal for those cold days.. when everything seem to move ever so slowly and you want a taste of the ocean right in your own home... My father likes it.. I hope you will too.. I think it's a cross between a famous soup Sicilians love and a similar soup we enjoy here in Southeast Asia.. Enjoy

  • ½ pound shrimp (medium sized, peeled and deveined)

  • Sauté garlic and ginger over medium-high flame (don't brown).
  • Dump in all the seafood and season lightly with salt and pepper. Stir lightly to coat the fish with the oil and aromatics, then gradually add in water and bouillon cube. Simmer until seafood is cooked.
  • Add in tomatoes, basil leaves and cilantro leaves. Adjust seasoning.
  • Continue simmering for one more minute stirring lightly to disperse the lovely reds and greens throughout the pot.
  • Serve in a large soup bowl with a generous anointing of extra virgin olive oil.
