Zuppa Di Pesce (Italian Fish Soup)

Cook’s Tips: 

  • If using frozen seafood portions, rinse any ice glaze off under cold water, then add seafood to soup during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Cover the pan tightly and cook 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the seafood rest in the soup for 5 minutes. Break seafood into large chunks to serve.
  • This soup is excellent with Alaska Lingcod too!
