single-handed zuppa di mare

i'm eating this while i'm blogging this. it's a late dinner for me, on account of having breakfast at 3. to fully appreciate this recipe you have to do it on ONE HAND.

zuppa di mare (seafood soup)

one half onion, chopped
one half carrot, cubed
one stalk celery, chopped
one chili padi, sliced
one clove garlic, sliced
one can roma tomatoes, chopped
1/3 piece of flake (or other white fish), in cubes
1/3 calamari tube, in one-inch squares
5-6 small prawns, peeled
tsp dried basil

Brown onions, celery and carrots in pot with some olive oil. Add garlic, roma tomatoes and two cans of water. Bring to boil, add flake, basil and chili padi. Once boiling, add squid. Once boiling again, add prawns. Bring to boil and simmer. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves one hungry person and half a small hungry person.

Option 1: Add a dash of olive oil just before serving.
Option 2: Eat with toasted crusty bread.
