This soup takes less than 20 minutes to prepare, peeling the shrimp is probably what takes the most time. Cod fish would work in place of halibut and you can easily substitute any shellfish for what is listed here.

  1. I made it tonight. I didn’t have the clams, but we live in Alaska, so we had halibut. 
    I also didn’t get the saffron. I wonder what difference that would make.
    It was good. My whole family enjoyed it.

  2. Couldn’t find halibut, so used cod. Also got confused on using parsley or thyme, so used just a little thyme, Turned out great, Husband’s not a soup lover, but he really liked this. It’s a keeper!

  3. Sencillamente delicioso

  4. This was so good. I used cod with clams, shrimp and steamers since that’s all I had and added salt and pepper. My husband and daughter said it was restaurant quality. Thank you! I really love your recipes!

  5. Made this tonight and the wife loved it! Went with the Thyme instead of parsley and you know what either or both would work!
    We'll be doing this one again soon!

  6. Im dying to make this… This weekend for sure! I freaking LOVE light brothy seafood soups <3

  7. This was amazing! I switched up the veg. broth for fish stock, it had a ton of flavor

  8. Excellent!

  9. This has become one of my favorite soups. I make this all the time. It is an amazing recipe.

  10. Delicious and so light! I used cod as halibut is very expensive in the midwest. Upped wine to 1cup. Added more shrimp and clams than needed, but we love seafood! Only other addition was a small pinch of red pepper flakes for a little bite.added thyme and parsley at the end. Yummy!

  11. Is that sodium count correct? Seems pretty high!

  12. Seafood done right is so delicious and this recipe looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  13. Hi, I am new to this site. My daughter has been raving about it for at least a year! I see why! I am going to try this soup as my first recipe. My husband is an avid fisherman here in Florida and we LOVE to go Shrimping, Never a shortage of fish and shrimp. I have to say, I fear I waste the fish skeleton, fish heads, ect. I can not get over my fear of bones getting into the food. With this recipe, seeing as you say adding the bone if you have it would be great to do, and I actually have the bone, what do you recommend? I just don't know how to be sure its in tact. How is this done exactly? I know we are missing out when we have people asking us for whats left after he filets the fish. The shrimp heads are no different. Ugh…What should I be doing? Please help!
