This is a tried and tested staple in our household. Its soothing and just begs to be eaten. It can easily be adapted for vegetarians or vegans by substituting the fish stock for vegetable stock and replacing the cockle popcorn with fried Tofu (omit the quails eggs). I’ve tried it with several different toppings including chicken and salmon so let your imagination go wild!
