A Flavorful Fishy Feast
With so much seafood variety in our freezer, we couldn’t pick just one meat to have for dinner. We decided to throw all our marine life into a beautiful and delicious seafood soup! Soups are a fantastic low-carb option as they tend to contain mostly keto-friendly broths and seasonings. Of course, our recipe is totally keto approved!
Soups are also a great way to use up a lot of ingredients and keep the yum going for days. Soups hold up very well in the refrigerator; some people say their soups taste even better after a day or two since the flavors continue mixing and developing in the fridge. It’s always great to keep some stock or broth in the house to make a quick soup that’ll last the week. Many soups are freezer friendly as well so you can make a big batch enjoy some now and freeze the rest for later!
We had some wild-caught cod left from our Chili Lime Cod dinner, some calamari and shrimp, all waiting to meet! They all defrosted pretty quickly, so don’t worry if all your fish is frozen. We left the cod and calamari in a bowl of water for about an hour, and the shrimp, about 20 minutes. You can also move the frozen seafood to the refrigerator the night before you plan on making the soup.
To finish off some delicious seafood soup, we added fresh lime juice and parsley to give it zest and freshness. The combination is amazing; your entire bowl will be bursting with different flavors. This flavor profile is nice and bright, making it a perfect meal to enjoy on a hot summer day when you want something light yet filling.
If you don’t have some of the three main seafood ingredients, you can substitute with your favorite fish, scallops, clams or mussels. If you don’t have seafood broth, any other broth will do! No coconut cream? Add organic heavy whipping cream! To make this more of a chowder, consider adding some potatoes to cook with your veggies until fork tender. To keep this dish paleo and low carb friendly, we skipped the potatoes (they won’t be missed!). There are so many ways to customize this soup so see what you have in your fridge and go with it- it will surely come out tasting great!
One thing to keep in mind is to make sure if you’re using fresh dill, basil or parsley, to add them in at the last 5 minutes of cooking. These fresh herbs are delicate and can break down and lose flavor if cooked too long. You can sprinkle them on at the very end just to be extra safe, preserving their great taste for sure!
