  1. Defrost white fish and salmon and bake in the oven – then cool off and back to the fridge.
  2. Put cans of soup and tomatoes in a large heavy pot and heat up.
  3. In another pan put your chopped onions, celery, and carrots in some olive oil and gently cook it until the onions are cooked then add to the soup with some chili flakes.
  4. When the soup in the pot is hot, add the calamari rings; turn down the heat and simmer for a bit (don’t forget to stir the soup).
  5. When calamari is tender, take off the heat. (I let it cool off and put it in the fridge)
  6. An hour before your guests come, take the pot out of the fridge and slowly reheat.
  7. Once the soup is hot, add fish (cut into bite-size pieces) mussels, clams, and prawns.
  8. Finish off with some black pepper.
  9. Serve hot with baguettes.
