    Rita~'s Note:

    Whatever you may call it this Italian named fish stew or soup or as Rachael Ray would say "Stoup." You can use any kind of white fish your fish monger has fresh like cod (my favorite), catfish, flounder then add some shell fish seasonings and soup it is.

      The soup fit my current low cal, low carb diet perfectly and I knew by looking at the ingredients that this recipe had to be a winner and it was. What a great flavored soup! I used Knorr shrimp bouillon instead of the shrimp stock and I used a jar of marinara sauce as a substitute for one of the cans of tomatoes. I also added more garlic and a few dashes of hot sauce. Yummm.....the flavors simply danced in my mouth!

      I fixed this for our dinner the other night and all I can say is WOW!! I cut the recipe in half used 3/4 of a can of diced tomatoes (28 oz. italian), about 1 1/2 cups of crushed tomatoes and used a piece of sea bass, one tilapia fillet, some shrimp and almost 1/2 a package of Trader Joe's Seafood mix (put shrimp and the seafood mix in towards the end till cooked). I did add a little (about 1/4 tsp.) of fennel seed along with the other spices and followed the rest of the recipe. I did use kale, which we loved because it retains some of its texture and doesn't get mushy. Thank you for another wonderful recipe.
