Seafood Soup – Sopa Marinera
A delicious soup from Central America.
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.
