CREAMY FISHY SOUP
COOKBOOK: CLASSIC SEAFOOD - Step by Step
So the name of this recipe doesn’t do it for you!
I get that! Not totally inviting, right?
I told the family that I was making 'creamy fishy soup' and there was no excitement in the room for dinnertime.
They say you should not judge a book by its cover and the same should apply to a recipe. This was absolutely delicious! There wasn’t even a little left over for Jet :(
