Gather your supplies. Use the freshest, wild caught fish you can find. And any combo of seafood works. To make Siete Mares, add octopus, crab, abalone, clams, and scallops
Sauté onion in 3T butter or olive oil til browned. Add tomato, garlic, chile and cook 5-10 min or until tomato begins to break down.
Add bullion cubes, tomato sauce and spices to taste, I use a pinch of oregano, cumin, fresh black pepper & sea salt. Add 3 qts. water Make sure to leave enough room in your stock pot for your seafood!
Bring broth slowly to a boil over low heat. Stir often. At 45 minutes, taste and see if you need to adjust any spices. The broth is very mild. Add your seafood and boil 3-5 min. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!!
Spoon soup into bowl with one large piece of fish. Add shrimp on the side and then add your liquid. Garnish with cilantro, like juice and hot sauce, if desired. ENJOY!!!!
