Southern Italian Fish Soup

Cooking Light
If you have a great seafood market nearby, try adding other fish or seafood--clams or chopped scallops or cod, for example. You can make the broth for this fresh, fast soup the day before. Follow the recipe through step one, cover, and chill. To finish, bring the broth to a simmer, and proceed with step two.
