A fusion soup and mish-mash of flavor notes of seafood, Mediterranean, and Asian that surprisingly work well together. Very hearty, packed with vegetable, protein and little fat.
Though the ingredients seemed a lot, this recipe is very adaptable. If you don't like any vegetable, just omit or substitute it with your favorite. The fish can be substituted with any mild flavored fish that you like. Shrimp can be omitted, changed to fish with same amount, or mussels.
This recipe is also good to use up the leftover hummus you have in the fridge. The hummus give a nice body and thickness to the soup without being too rich.
If you want it to be richer, add splash of double cream before serving. We eat it with rice or bread, or just as is. —foofaraw
