Seafood Soup – Sopa Marinera

published by GWitt on Jul 14, 2010

A delicious soup from Central America.

Sopa Marinera

1 big bag of mixed seafood.

2 cans coconut milk (leche de coco)

2 quarts water

1 1/2 pound of yucca (potatoes can be substituted)

2 ripe platanos

1 tablespoon  annatto (achiote)

2 shrimp bullion cubes

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

2 to 4 ears of corn quartered

Salt and pepper to taste

Lemon on the side


Clean seafood good and cut to size. Put a big pot on the stove with water. Just before the water starts to boil add all ingredients and cook 15 minutes. Serve with white rice.

The coconut milk gives it a slightly sweeter flavor than tomato based seafood soups. White wine can be added for a little extra flavor. Sopa Marinera is a healthy meal.

Buen Provecho!
