Easy Fish Soup

There are a million and one ways to make fish soup. From New England Chowder to San Frans’ Cippino  you can make fish soup for every day of the week and not even come close to repeating a recipe.

I’m going to give you a recipe for a VERY simple fish soup. My goal is to make this in one pot, with minimal effort so you can spend more time enjoying dinner!
4c water or fish stock
1lb white fish cubed
1 small onion chopped
1 carrot chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
2 cloves garlic smashed
2c gold/red potatoes cubed or whole fingerlings
1tsp salt
Fresh herbs for garnish
Bring the stock and salt to a boil. Add the potatoes, let simmer about 5 minutes then add the carrots, green pepper, onion, garlic and fish. Cook about 10 minutes, just until the fish is cooked. It will turn solid white. 
If you’d like a little spice add some fresh jalapeño! Lime juice is also really good in this dish. 
Feel free to play with the veggies, add broccoli or celery. Use sweet potatoes…
Add a little fennel to really make the soup special! or saffron!
Top with fresh herbs like mint, parsley, cilantro, dill, orefennel fronds…
