This made a fabulous dinner. The broth is superb and don't be swayed by the anchovies - they definitely added 'oomph' to the whole dish and are totally necessary. I also provided some freshly-grated Parmesan at the table to sprinkle overtop, something I like with fish soups, and plain bruschetta on the side (just rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil). Thanks.
I was dying to make this, and I'm so glad I did! It was wonderful! I used little clams instead of mussels, because mussels don't like me. There was too much snow on my parsley, so I left that out. Otherwise stuck mostly to the recipe. Had a big loaf of homemade Italian bread with this, and a big salad. Yummy! Thanks, Chia!
