If you want a more savory broth, add a bit of kombu, dried shrimp and bonito to the broth. I actually start my broth the night before in a crock pot. I add in a few crab shells or fish bones and let it cook overnight. It’s not that hard to do and add a ton of flavor to the dish.
This dish was served with Acarajé. Check out my recipe for them here.
White wine is typical with fish and seafood. But, there’s a lot of smoke and pepper flavor in this dish because of the smoked paprika. I think that makes it heavy enough to stand up to a red wine.
Chianti and peppers are a classic food and wine pairing. So, that’s what I paired with this soup. And, it was great. Check it out below.
