Introduction

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

  • 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.
