My first--and last--bowl of snapper soup was eaten in Mayo's Halfway House on Rt. 72 in New Jersey. Their wings are good.

Too reminiscent of brown gravy for your liking? Oyster House does a refreshingly light take on the viscous old standby.

Along with snapper soup, don't forget pepperpot soup. When Campbell's still made pepperpot, at Christmastime, the closer you got to New Years Day, the supermarket shelves would be wiped out of pepperpot. I often wondered why, when they discontinued the condensed cans of pepperpot, they didn't do a run of it, as a chunky soup, to sell in the Philadelphia area.

Precisely. It was very brown and murky. It wasn't good.

My local, regional Seafood retailer sells a good, homemade Snapper Soup. Bookbinders was famous for it, and they used to sell it canned, but I don't know if that is still available. Gotta put Sherry in it.!
