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!
