This shrimp and scallop pozole is spectacular. The recipe may seem complicated because it has several steps, but I assure you it’s not difficult at all and when you sit down to eat, you’ll see that all the effort was worth it. It’s a complete meal and I recommend it for any weekend. Especially for Easter, this soup is preferred since it’s all about the fish and seafood. Rich in flavors and textures, you can make it more or less spicy, according to your taste. MORE + LESS -
