If possible wake up your dead after eating this amazing chicken broth dish at dawn when everyone has gone off working hard day after work/school...
The "AguaditodePollo" or simply 'the Auap' as I like to call him feels more alive than ever before in these colder months because every sip brings out new tastes which are both refreshing yet satisfyingly comforting during those winter days.
For the best seafood, you need a good broth and plenty of fresh vegetables. Salmon or other oily fish will add richness to your soup while scallops make for an elegant finish if added at this stage with only one minute left in cooking time before removing from the heat source so they don't overcook on their own accord.
Beer can be substituted without sacrificing flavor but it's still recommended that new cooks try out all options available because each variation may vary slightly due to its ingredient list varying depending upon personal preference whether vegetarian-friendly etc., which is why I always recommend trying things until find what suits everyone’s taste!
In Peru, the freshest vegetables are used. However, frozen veggies can be substituted if needed.
We also have huge green peas and they take a while to cook which is why it's best not to add them until near completion of the cooking process or else your dish
Will lack flavor due in large part from being overcooked by this time point since our usual method calls for adding these particular legumes towards at end-stage instead where they remain tender but still firm enough so as avoid any mushiness during consumption.
Cilantro is the main ingredient in this soup because it adds not only flavor but color. Aguadito has a green hue, depending on how long you cook down your cilantro paste with onion--the longer they cook for,
the lighter or darker their final product will be. You can even add some spinach leaves if desired-just doesn't forget about them while cooking!
