I have nice large peice of fresh, firm white fish, as well as some squid from the market this morning. So, I thought the time was right for Floyd’s fish soup.
Here’s the recipe:
An Italian Fish Soup
2 kilos firm fleshed fish (filleted, strips), assorted seafood such as squid, prawns, mussles etc.

2 sticks celery, chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
2 kilos tomatoes, skinned, chopped
3-4 anchovy fillets, chopped
handful chopped parsley, basil
2-3 cloves chopped garlic
1.4 litres hot water / fish stock
1. In a large saucepan, saute the celery, carrots and onion in olive oil until soft.

3. Add hot water or stock and bring to a boil.
4. Add squid if using, simmer 20 mins. Add rest of fish/seafood, simmer another 20 mins.
5. Ladle into hot bowls, serve.
