Buridda is a seafood soup or stew in Italian cuisine from Liguria, in Northern Italy. Some preparations may be slow-cooked, while others are cooked in a relatively short amount of time (9–10 minutes). It has also been described as a stew, or as similar in texture to a stew.
Ingredients and preparation
Buridda's primary ingredients include seafood, fish broth, tomato, onion, and garlic. Traditionally, the soup was served with gallette del marinaio (dry, round bread buns), which would be soaked in it. In contemporary times, toasted bread may be used. It may contain several types of fish, and additional seafoods may include eel, squid, clams, or mussels. Simple preparations may be cooked with only dried cod and potato.
