Cooking Foods Italian Recipes – Fish Soup

 

There are many versions of Italian famous Zuppa Di Pesce, I developed this one cooked inside the oven to enable you to get the whole fishes in ti the plate without break them as usual happens when you cook the fishes in to a pot.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

Onion – one

Carrot – one

Garlic – few cloves

Sage – two-three leaves

Thyme – few leaves

Laurel – few leaves

Parsley – few leaves

Basil – few leaves

Tomato juice – two glasses

White wine – two glasses

Extra virgin olive oil – half glass

Marine salt

Fish of various kind – 4 pounds (2 kilos) please note that this is the quantity I used in the following recipe; you can have less weight and choose different fishes only remember to follow these rules:

1_use sea water fishes only: do not mix them with lake or river fishes please!

2_you need at least one type of bottom fish (grouper, snapper, mullet, sea-bass, anglerfish or goosefish, rockfish, skorpionfish);

3_you need at least three different fishes;

4_to improve the taste add at least one crostaceous (shrimp, prawn, lobster);

5_to improve the taste add some squid or cuttlefish: please note that I do not suggest octopus to make the Zuppa di Pesce;

6_o improve the taste add some mussels and/or clams.

I like to remember that also the vegetal flavors can be replaced with some of your choice: my recipe is a guideline to describe how to make Italian food.

No worries if you miss some ingredients: if the fish is fresh you will get a good soup using only tomato, salt and water believe me! Said this, please try to find some ingredients anyway, OK?
