Ingredients

  • 1  Tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil
  • leeks, halved and thinly sliced
  • bulb fennel, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • 2  Tablespoons  tomato paste
  • 1/2  Cup  white wine
  • 4  Cups  seafood or vegetable broth
  • can crushed tomatoes
  • 1  Cup  pitted green olives
  • 1  Pound  shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 1/2  Pound  mussels, scrubbed and debearded
  • bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed into bite size pieces
  • 1  Teaspoon  salt
  • 3/4  Teaspoons  freshly ground black pepper, plus more for garnish
  • 4  Tablespoons  fresh chopped herbs (such as parsley, cilantro, and mint, or a combination)
  • Zest of one lemon
  • slices grilled or toasted baguette

Directions

In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the leeks and fennel and cook until wilted and fragrant, 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more.

Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the tomato paste begins to brown slightly.

Add the white wine, broth, and crushed tomatoes and bring to a simmer over medium low heat. Simmer until good flavor develops, 25-30 minutes.

Stir in the olives, shrimp, mussels, and broccoli rabe, ensuring it is all submerged in the broth. Cover the pot and simmer over medium low heat until the shrimp is pink and opaque, the mussels are open, and the broccoli rabe is tender-crisp, 4-5 minutes. Season the soup with salt and pepper.

To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with additional freshly ground black pepper, a sprinkling of fresh herbs, and a bit of lemon zest. Serve with toasted bread.

Seafood Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
