Fish Soup Recipe

Mediterranean Fish Soup Recipe

A Great - Healthy - Fish Soup RecipeWe won't pretend that this fish soup recipe is quick and easy - there's a fair bit of work involved but believe us the results are well worth it.
This is our version of the Sopa de Pescados y Mariscos found all along Spain's Andalucian Coast.
It's not difficlut, more a deconstruction and reconstruction job, building up, step-by-step to the final taste explosion.
For us it's a labour of love and you won't want anything else to eat but some of our crusty homemade bread.
Why not include it in your own Mediterranean diet. It's healthy and full of goodness.
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.
