brodetto (di pesce) delle coste abruzzese

/broh-DEHT-toh (dee PEH-sheh) dehl-leh KOHS-teh ahl-lah-broots-TSEH-seh/

A version of the famous fish soup from Abruzzo, made with good stock from bony fish and containing many different types of fish, including good quality fish such as grey mullet (US: striped mullet), octopus and monkfish (US: angler fish) in large pieces, served with fried bread. Unlike most other versions of brodetto, this does not contain saffron, even though saffron is grown in Abruzzo e Molise.
