Casuela de Mariscos, seafood soup from Colombian Coast
If you love seafood this is the soup recipe you want to try, from the coast of Colombia. Of course the fresher the seafood the better but still worth trying with frozen fish if you are landlocked or don’t have the budget for fresh. My first taste of Casual was in Carta Gena, the flavor stuck with me all the way back to the states. I had to find a way to re-create this delicousness. Looking online and reading may cook books I tried several combinations until I found perfected this recipe.
The secret to this stew is all about making the best broth and then cooking the seafood in the amazing broth base. A blender or immersion blender to make this soup work. Your base to the broth is blended fresh veggies and coconut milk. This recipe calls for seafood or chicken broth, all you chefs out there if you make your own stock it will push this flavor into nirvanna.
Equipment: large pot, smaller pot with lid, soup ladle, blender or immersion blender
