In honor of National Seafood Month, I'm sharing another recipe that you can make using any mix of fish and seafood that you might have in your fridge, freezer, or even the pantry (tinned). Seafood is high in omega-3's, healthy fats that are essential for heart and brain health, and the USDA's Dietary Guidelines recommend that we eat at least two serving of seafood every week to improve overall health. Soup is a simple way to do that.
Smoked fish is one of my favorite things to eat alone or use as an ingredient. It's an easy way to add depth to the flavor of a quick meal. I used half smoked fish in this recipe, but feel free to use any combination of fish and seafood that you have to make up the entire 3 pounds called for.
Seafood Nutrition Partnership, acknowledging that seafood is a healthy protein choice and that I will eat it twice a week (keeping in mind that omega-3 supplements are another good way to get those health benefits into my diet). With October being National Seafood Month, I thought I'd take this opportunity to invite you to take the pledge, as well!
