If you are a seafood and fish lover this easy and delicious fish soup recipe is for you. This recipe of the fish soup 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 like in other fish soup recipes.
The secret of how to make a perfect fish soup 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 nonfat white fish like cod or halibut. You can use canned cod for your broth if you like. You can even add scallops, shrimp or mussels. They all are perfect compliments to this aromatic flavorful dish, especially shrimp. Here is the list of the ingredients which will give the piquant note. They are: different kinds of peppers, such as chili pepper, garlic powder, cumin, onion or other green vegetables. Add peeled and chopped medium onions and diced tomatoes into your cooking saucepan. This will give color and specific flavor to your dish. Heat the pot up till the water begin to simmer and then boil. When the soup is almost ready reduce heat to low level.
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 to cook 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. Now, when you know how to cook this perfect fish soup, you can surprise your guests with it anytime. Enjoy!
