Tuscan Fish Soup.

No tuscan fish soup this. This is the leftover salmon and shrimp bisque to which I added tomato, mahi mahi and scallops as well as some heavy garlic and cilantro.
This is soup week. Tomorrow a wonderful middle eastern lamb and chick pea soup with harissa.

Here is all the info Rita:
Mahi Mahi is a fish found in warm waters. We get it here from Hawaii and it is mid-range expensive. Very hardy flesh and great taste. Here is a link:
Cilantro is also called coriander in a parsley like form. It is very popular in South American cuisine. I first came across it in Brazil.
Harissa is a paste made from tomato, chili peppers flakes, garlic and olive oil to name a few ingredients. It is very hot and is used in Middle Eastern cuisine as an accompaniement to cous cous.
