Italian Soup Recipes

If you are looking for a simple and very tasty cod soup recipe, well Cod Almighty, you have come to the right place!

Cod is such a versatile type of fish, blending well in so many Italian Seafood recipes. That is why I really enjoy using cod in various types of dishes.

Another nice thing about cod is that when you buy it fresh or even frozen, it never seems to have a strong fish smell or taste to it.

This cod soup recipe has a warm, inviting and delicious ambience which makes it a winner in the winter (and the spring for that matter!) Like a mentioned above it is a very simple dinner recipe and takes no time to make at all. Lots of veggies and spices make this cod soup a healthy choice as well.

Note: Focaccia bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar is the perfect pairing with this outstanding soup.
