If you are a seafood and fish lover this easy and delicious fish soup recipe is for you. Is is simply awesome.
In just under 40 minutes you can achieve the ultimate seafood soup, worthy of a fancy restaurant, in the comfort of your own home without expensive prices or any complicated prep.
The secret is that I am eliminating a complicated fish stock making process by using store-bought clam juice and white wine. Clam juice is definitely you pantry’s next secret weapon in making this super easy but flavorful one pot dish. And it is wildly available, being sold at every grocery store in shelf stable section.
I also prefer to use salmon as my fish. Lushest fresh salmon that is high in fat and is so loved for it’s melt-in-your-mouth texture just brings so much flavor to the broth as well. Nobody will ever know that you didn’t spent hours making homemade fish broth. That’s how rich and ample it would taste. Salmon also holds very well and will not fall apart in your soup.
If you are not a fan of fatty full-body taste of salmon you can absolutely substitute for a milder firm white fish like cod or halibut. You can even add scallops, shrimp or mussels. They all are perfect compliments to this aromatic flavorful dish.
White wine intensifies, enhances and accents the flavor and aroma of fish (salmon in my case) or seafood. Together they create a wonderful balance of sweet and savory, buttery and acidic. It is a true match made in heaven.
My husband loves salmon and can eat it every day of the week. This scrumptious soup is a great way to diversify your average grilled salmon choice. And it is as delicious as it is simple to make, which is another reason to love it.
