Sopa De Rape (Monkfish Stew)
Here is an adaptation of the recipe (pictured above) for Sopa de Rape (monkfish soup). This is a very typical soup in Spain with many variations. Often it contains a sofrito (sofregit in Catalan) base of tomatoes and onions; saffron; and a picada made from parsley, toasted almonds, garlic and toasted bread. If you can’t find monkfish, you could also use any other firm-fleshed white fish such as mahi mahi or red snapper. It's the perfect alternative to a hearty lobster bisque on a chilly winter night!
