Simple Fish Soup
This soup will make your tastebuds scream “we want more!” This simple fish soup uses frozen fish as well as items that are probably already sitting in your pantry (canned tomatoes, herbs). Feel free to jazz up this tasty soup with the addition of dry white wine (1/2 cup as replacement for about 1/2 cup of water), with the addition of a fish/clam stock, or by adding more veggies! Serve with brown rice or homemade croutons!
- 1 medium onion, diced finely
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 tsp dried dill
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 3 tilapia fillets (or other mild fish, I used frozen, don’t worry about chopping)
- 2 TBSP tomato paste (optional)
- 2 TBSP lemon juice (optional)
- pinch of black pepper
- 6-8 cups water
- Sautee onion and carrot in olive oil over medium heat until onions are slightly transparent.
- Add herbs, pepper, tomatoes, tomato paste, pepper, fish and water (or stock, wine also gets added here too, if using), bring to a boil.
- Cook until carrots are tender and fish is flaky, about 10 minutes
- Serve topped with homemade croutons and a squeeze of lemon juice
Home Made Croutons
- Cut bread into cubes (day old bread would probably work awesomely)
- Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a pan, add bread once oil is hot
- Sprinkle on seasonings (I used a garlic/parsley salt blend)
- Shake pan until bread cubes are toasted
