Tomato Seafood Chowder
This thick, rich and fragrant tomato seafood soup reminds me of my beloved and “tasty” Italy. What a pity that I had to give up on many classic dishes of this country because of the transition to a low-carb diet. But on the other hand, on keto there are no restrictions for fish and seafood, and I am extremely happy about this.

Heat the oil in a deep saucepan or pot. Add onion and celery, fry until soft. Add garlic and fry for a couple of minutes, stirring. Then pour the tomatoes along with the juice, mix everything well and bring to a boil. Season to taste. Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 10-15 minutes.
