fish and seafood soup

An essential specialty in Normandy, the Dieppe pot is a variant of matelote, the Norman equivalent of Provençal bouillabaisse. To facilitate the recipe, the Dieppe Thermomix pot takes advantage of the strengths of the food processor, and that’s good: slightly revisited, the fish and seafood soup is easier to prepare, but still tasty to taste.
