Calling all seafood lovers! This soup is for you! We used a combo of shrimp, scallops and lobster, and the result was a scrumptiously savory soup fit for a feast.

Directions

1
Saute in a large soup pot the leeks and onion in the olive oil until tender. Add the garlic, bay leaves, carrots and black pepper and cook for 5 minutes.
2
Add the potatoes, fennel, and orange zest. Cook another 10 minutes.
3
Add the stock, tomatoes and lemon juice. Continue cooking until potatoes and carrots are tender.
4
Mix in the fish, saffron, and parsley and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt to taste. Serve in heated bowls with crusty French bread.
