Seafood Soup

Salmon, shrimp and loads of chopped veggies make this chowder a hearty, herby meal-in-a-bowl. It's just the perfect homemade fish soup. —Valerie Bradley, Beaverton, Oregon

    I made this recipe exactly as stated just added a little salt. It's very good, a hearty filling meal. I served it with crusty Italian bread. Will make again.

    Very yummy. I substituted a mixed seafood bag instead of the shrimp and salmon and did not use all of the tomato paste.

    I thought this was excellent. I did add one ingredient I take my shrimp shells and put them in the oven and dry them out . Then I grind them up and Store them in the freezer.

    Very good soup but, I added salt and a tablespoon of sugar to cut the acidity of the tomato products. Also added more garlic and black pepper. Now it is fantastic, and I defiantly will double the batch next time. I used farm raised salmon. Could be why it was lacking in sodium?

    Love this soup. Looking at the recipe I punched it up a bit with more onion, garlic, basil, oregano and put in some salt. It was so good and easy. Also used fire roasted tomatoes which I think taste better than the others. So good.

    This was yummy. I wanted to make it for a main course so added a couple of potatoes and skipped the shrimp. Also added just a few red pepper flakes to give some kick. Hubby loved it!
