Savoury Mediterranean Fish Stew
Seafood soup (zuppa di Pesce) is a typical Italian dish, mainly made along the Italian coasts. Every region facing the sea has its own recipe. The recipe changes according to the type of fish fished in the area. One of the most popular recipes is called the Il Caciucco alla Livornese from the Tirreno sea (Tuscany). This recipe was introduced a few centuries ago by coastal fishermen. They discovered a way to use the unsold fishing catch. The tradition states that, to prepare a good Cacciucco, you should have at least 5 different types of fish (of for each letter c in Cacciucco).
Here is our version of the fish stew. We prepared it with the seafood we found at our trusted fishmonger in Copenhagen.
With this recipe, we brought a taste of Mediterranean food on our table, to feel the longing of a summer which is unfortunately almost gone.
