How to Make Mixed Seafood Soup


Mixed seafood soup is a very easy to prepare, hearty soup that makes a wonderful meal in the early fall months. Combining sea bass, red snapper, squid, prawns and fresh crabmeat, mixed seafood soup is rich in both texture and flavor. Serve the soup with a loaf of crusty whole-wheat bread and dill butter along with a glass of dry white wine with just a touch of fruit.

Things You'll Need

  • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • ½ lb. sea bass fillets
  • 1/2 lb. red snapper fillets
  • ½ lb. prepared squid
  • ½ lb. prawns, shelled and de-veined

  • Melt the unsalted butter in a large saucepan and add the sea bass, red snapper, squid prawns and crabmeat. Add the sliced onion and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes.
