'Caldo de Mariscos' – Mexican Seafood Broth

Our comforting broth is great for this transitional time of year as summer fades into autumn, and can be adapted to incorporate whichever fresh seafood you prefer. Serves 4-5.

  • Prep: 20 minutes
  • Cook: 50 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
  • Recipe serves: 4-5

Ingredients

  • 2 Large onions, peeled and chopped
  • 3 Sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 5 Garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 5 Tomatoes, skinned and chopped
  • 2 tbsp Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • Bunch of fresh coriander, chopped
  • Bay leaf
  • Oregano (dried), to taste
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Suggested seafood

  • 400g mussels, scrubbed and debearded

Instructions
