Italian fish soup "Cacciucco" with couscous
The first time I tried couscous in this dish in Sicily at the same restaurant and it was love at first spoonful!! Couscous goes well with this thick rich tomato soup of fish and seafood. Originally this soup was prepared by the seamen of any fish and seafood depending on the catch. According to legend, it was brewed by the widow of the deceased fisherman from fish and seafood, shared by the friends of the fisherman, to his children and was served with toasted bread. And if in the North of Italy couscous is not very common, in Sicily it is actively used in various dishes. Last year for Christmas it was prepared relatives for the holiday table, bought a huge amount of different fish and seafood, from the morning the ladies of the family cleaning fish, and in the evening in a narrow family circle of about 20 people with toasted bread and washed down with red wine, we celebrated the occasion. Want to offer a somewhat simplified version of this delicious soup.
