During winter, I do like a good soup to warm me up… During summer, it becomes harder to eat soup. It’s too hot, isn’t it? But there’s always those days when you feel like a bit of comfort food and then who can resist a good fish soup topped up with seafood a small rings of pasta? This would be my choice of dish for these days – Fish and seafood soup with Ditalini pasta…
When my mum buys fish she always buys it whole, i.e. including the head. Some fishes are cooked whole but others no. And so she uses the heads to make fish soup. I find this to be quite a nice idea so we don’t waste anything. But there’s also another alternative: buy just the head of the fish. Did you ever notice salmon heads being sold in the fisheries? That’s what I use for my soups 🙂 it’s cheaper and you can still get a lot of meat out of it. Of course, you can use any fish you want but this is usually my choice.
To this soup, I decided to add some seafood and pasta. The seafood to add more flavour and the pasta to make it richer. I’m not a fan of watery soups so the pasta helps to add texture to it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did 🙂
