How to make Mexican Seafood Soup?

If you love Mexican food, you probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry, so will be really easy to make this soup.

Today, I am sharing with you this very authentic Mexican Seafood Soup recipe, called Caldo de Camaron.

My obsession for Mexican soups has reached another level.

After making Mexican chicken soup with rice (Caldo Tlalpeño) and Mexican tortilla soup (vegetarian) (Soups Azteca) was only natural to try a seafood Mexican soup recipe too!

Mexican has become one of my favorite cuisines along wth the Brazilian one during the last couple of years. Most of the times when we travel though the country, we will look for a good Mexican restaurant to stop and have lunch/ dinner.

Funny thing, the best Mexican I’ve tried so far in all these years was in a small town Wilson, along I95 in North Carolina, La Rancherita Grill & Tequila Bar.

A.m.a.z.i.n.g!

Best Sangria.

Best cheese dip.

Best Tacos I have ever had! and the list goes on… Top notch authentic Mexican food at a very reasonable price 🙂

La Rancherita Mexican restaurant

We cannot wait to make a special stop and have lunch/ dinner there when we will be traveling to Charleston later this year.

That good it is!

Soup is always comforting! I'm surprised that there is adobo sauce in the soup. For the longest time, I thought adobo is from the Philippines! Apparently, it's origin is from Spain and Portugal. How interesting! Anyhow, I am loving all the flavors in this soup. Looks light but filling. :)

In Iran we have seafood stews that we serve with rice but we don't have soup, so this is very new to me and I just love everything in it! It looks pretty easy and I'm sure we will enjoy having it! I will try it soon!
