let cook till potatos were tender

added red snapper and lobster, cooked for a couple minutes, then added a 1/2 litre heavy cream

simmer for a few minutes and thickened with tapioca starch

Finished with juice of one lemon

Was drinking a Maudite and thought that may have been a good additon too, but it was too late

I would have sauted some lobster shells, added a mirepoix, then the wine and the stock, let it simmer a while.

I would have done everything that you did except for the tapioca starch, I would have made a roux at the begining. Or cooked the potatoes until they became the thickening agent. And I would have poached the fish in at the end, letting the soup simmer for a while. Nice touch on the dijon.

Maudite Francais!

I sauted the shells when I made the stock, and didn't use a roux because my daughter is allergic to wheat and I didn't have enough time to let the potatos thicken it, was unsure how a rice flour roux would have worked

my sister is like your daughter. She's always throwing these shitty starches for me to thicken shit whenever I cook.

Flour is the only way to thicken things properly.

however, you could saute the veg, deglaze with wine, add the stock, add the cream, add a bunch of potatoes and cook, let reduce until thick. puree and strain. that's a fucking good thick stock right there. good base for chowders and what not. Or you could use 1/2 fish stock, 1/2 chicken, then use that as a base for a smoked salmon chowder. Toss in some diced celery root, you have a smoked salmon chowder to die for!

ya same veggie.

I would do a nice dice of onions, carrots, celery, celeriac and saute it, add some wine, bay leaf, then add the stock. I would dice few red potatoes and in a seperate pot, bring to a boil and let cool, just enough to cook them, then I would strain and add them to the soup at the end. Then I would add the diced salmon, diced potatoes and finish off the seasoning. This would keep the potatoes intact, not have too strong a fishy taste and everything would have a nice texture. maybe finish it with some fresh dill and basil. maybe drizzle a smoked tomato compote or some floofy shit on top for colour with some chopped chives…

yeah, just like I did with that one. What I did was I breaded the oysters in white cornmeal and cooked them in clarified butter until crispy. Drained on a paper towel. Then just before I served the soup I threw a few of the cooked oysters in. Oh, I stilled used the celeriac in there too.
