How to make a Quick Tasty Tomato Fish Soup
Tomato Fish Soup is one of my favorite soups at home and in restaurants. There are so many ways to make fish soup, some simple, others a little more complicated. This recipe is super easy to make in less than an hour.
You can make this Tomato Fish Soup in a single pot, making your clean up afterwards much easier. All you need to do is put a casserole on the stove over a medium heat. Add an onion, a few garlic cloves and spices. Then pour in a can of whole tomatoes, mix and let simmer until tomatoes break down. Finally throw in a mixture of fish and shellfish, whatever you choose. Select firm fish that will retain its shape without falling apart, such as cod, monkfish, or bass. And voilà your Tomato Fish Soup is prepared and ready to serve.
Yesterday, I discovered that Pavillions supermarket sells the leftover fish trimmings for only $2.47. What a bargain! Same quality as the whole fish yet a load less expensive. So I bought a pound of fish trimmings and decided to make this Tomato Fish Soup. Lucky for me, the trimmings included a combination of cod, salmon and tilapia fish. as well as large shrimp.
I also bought a pound of large shrimp to go in my soup. I love adding mussels and clams, yet this time I decided to keep it simple.
The soup featured in the photo was a bit thick, just as I like it. If you prefer a thinner soup, just add a little more water and perhaps add a bit more spices.
Comforting and Flavorful
I always find Tomato Fish Soup to be super comforting as well as tasty. I love its simplicity. The flavors blend together without any one ingredient overpowering the others. If you have any leftovers, the taste of the soup will be even better the next day when you reheat it since the flavors have had more time to mix together.
Tomato Fish Soup is also quite elegant, perfect for a special meal with a special someone. Although Tomato Fish Soup is easy to make, it looks as if it took a lot of effort.
Try making Tomato Fish Soup for someone special in your life and see their reaction. You will love how quick and tasty this Tomato Fish Soup can be.
