• 2 Tbsp Captain Rapps’ Everglades City All Y’all Seasoning

• 2 – 14.5 oz cans chicken broth

• 1 Dozen Large Key West Pink Shrimp peeled

• 2 Tripletail fillets (about 1 lb)

• 1/2 Cup chopped Italian Parsley

• Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese

PREPARATION: 

Cook pasta for 10 minutes just until firm/al dente. Run in cool water, drain, and set aside. In a large pot, cook garlic in the olive oil on medium until translucent. Keep on medium heat and add Tomatoes, Asparagus, Scallions, Zucchini, olives, and the Captain Rapps’ Everglades City All Y’all Seasoning. Simmer on medium stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes. Peel the shrimp and cut into 1” long pieces. Cube the fish fillets into 2” chunks. Now add the shrimp and fish to the pot and cover. Let cook for 10 minutes but do not stir the pot to avoid breaking up the fish chunks. Add the cooked pasta and stir very gently again to avoid breaking up the fish. Serve in bowls and top with fresh Italian parsley and grated Pecorino Romano cheese to taste.
