When the weather outside is frightful, we like to warm things up with some hearty Seafood Soup! It’s easy to make and chock full of seafood, potatoes, and veggies. Just imagine curling up next to a warm fire blaze with a steamy bowl of Seafood Soup and some crusty french bread. You’re sure to forget all about the rain or snow outside (depending on where you live, of course).
To make this Seafood Soup, just do a quick sauté on your veggies, create a bit of roux to thicken up the broth, then add your seafood and seasonings, and let it simmer a bit. That’s the really short story. Sounds easy, right? That’s because it is! Read on for the slightly longer, more detailed story…
- 1 lb . seafood mix frozen (shrimp, calamari, mussels, & scallops)
- 1-2 filets of white fish Mahi Mahi or Halibut work well
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup yellow onion diced
- 1 cup baby carrots sliced

Defrost seafood mix in a large bowl of water.
In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat.
Sauté the garlic, onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, for approximately 12-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are barely cooked.
Add the flour and reduce the heat to low and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often.
Add the vegetable broth; increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
Add the seafood, fish, corn, and all the seasonings (garlic salt, black pepper, curry powder, cumin, celery salt, cayenne pepper, ground ginger, and ground coriander seed).
Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes, until the seafood and fish is just cooked.
