50g butter
1 small onion

When everything is cooked, the shells are removed from the mussels and clams and the prawns are peeled; both seafood and broth are reserved.

The fish is chopped, cleaned of skin and bones, and mixed with the shellfish.

In a saucepan, melt the butter, add a tablespoon of flour, stir well and pour in a cup and a half of broth; then, it is left to cook for 15 minutes.
