    L'ecole's Note:

    Adapted from "Healthy Mexican Cooking" by Velda de La Garza. This recipe can be made with any combination of seafood (shrimp and fish is typical of South Texas, although we’ve also seen shrimp and octopus, or just fish). It could also be adapted to become a “Caldo de Pollo” by substituting chicken!

      I was craving a Seafood Soup with a light tomato base and stumbled on this recipe and thought I would give it a whirl. I used 5 humongo Shrimp and 3 petite Lobsters I picked up at the Farmer's Market. The woman at the market said to drop the shell fish it the broth for a few seconds and remove them and shell them then simmer the shells in the broth for 20 minutes. I then strained the broth, added the saute'd vegetables and added the Shell Fish, Cilantro and half an Avocado at the end. I had a big bowl with crackers and had to fight not to eat the rest. Can't wait for tomorrow where it will be even better. Thanks L'ecole definitely a keeper!
