  • Remove from the heat and add the flour (and tomato paste) return to heat and cook out

  • Cool slightly and add the warmed stock (a light chicken stick may also be used)

  • Stir until smooth and bring to the boil, season

  • Simmer for 1 hour stirring occasionally to prevent burning

  • Add cream just prior to serving

  • 75 gms of butter may be added to give a final enriching flavour

  • Finish with chopped chives or shredded coriander

Chef's Tip:

Bags of frozen mixed seafood are available from supermarkets and are often called or referred to as 'marinara'.

If you are using fresh shellfish cook the them as follows:

  • Place into a large saucepan with a wide bottom (or cook them in small batches)
  • Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan and place over a high heat with a lid on: this will steam them and retain the maximum of flavour
  • Allow to steam until cooked (until the shell opens), shake the pan from time to time to distribute the heat evenly
  • Strain, but retain the cooking liquid and use this as your stock for the soup
  • Pick the flesh out of the shells once cool
  • Repeat as required

Enjoy and bon appetit . . . . .
