"This quick Mediterranean-inspired seafood soup has an herbed tomato base and is full of seafood! I love serving crusty French bread alongside to soak up the broth."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Crumble in the saffron; add the fennel seeds and the red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the Classico sauce, seafood stock and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer until the onion is tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Place the fish in a bowl and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the rosemary, thyme, and marjoram. Add the shrimp and the remaining tablespoon oil. Toss gently to coat.
  5. Place the fish and shrimp into the tomato base mixture. Cook over medium-low heat until the shrimp is opaque throughout and the fish begins to flake apart, about 5 minutes.


  • Note: Saffron is an expensive spice, but it is vital to this recipe. There is not an appropriate substitute.

I'll make it again as it was good. I used a spicy tomato sauce base and added celery and cooked potatoes. It was a bit of a Roman Remains dish to be honest but tasted really good. The blend of ...

Five stars for simplicity and flavor. Followed the recipe to a t . I might add some spinach or some kind of green next time just to incorporate a serving of veggies. ??P

This is fantastic! I made it as is, with the exception of the broth. I couldn't find seafood broth at my store so I subbed vegetable broth. Yummy!

Delicious! The final product as written lacked fullness in my taste, so I added some sharp cheese and it was perfect!

This is very good, and reasonable calories. Could not find seafood stock, but it's very easy to make from the shrimp shells ahead of time.
