Instructions

Combine all of the spices in a small bowl.

Toss to coat the fish after seasoning it with a generous amount of kosher salt, black pepper, and two to three teaspoons of the spice combination.

Three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil should be heated over medium-high heat in a big pot or Dutch oven. Add the celery, garlic, onions, and bell peppers. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the vegetables are tender. Add a generous amount of black pepper and kosher salt for seasoning. Pour in the remaining blend of spices.

Stir in the chicken broth, white wine, and tomatoes. After bringing to a boil, turn down to medium-low. After partially covering the pot, boil it for 20 minutes.

When the fish is cooked through, add it and cook it for another 4 to 5 minutes, being careful not to overcook it because it will continue to cook in the boiling broth even after you remove it from the heat.

Add the green onions, cilantro, and parsley and stir. Add lemon juice to finish. Serve right away.

Notes

What kind of fillet of fish should I use? Use a fish fillet that is fairly firm for this recipe. I used a mix of red snapper and sea bass, as the recipe states. Cod and halibut are also excellent choices.

Leftovers. Depending on how fresh the fish was when it was cooked, fish soup can be kept in the refrigerator for two to three days. In order to ensure that the fish doesn’t overcook, I like to remove it and thoroughly warm the broth before briefly adding the fish back in.

FAQs

What kind of fish to use?

A moderately firm fish fillet such as halibut, cod, sea bass, or even red snapper will work in this fish stew. I like to use a combination of fish, this time it was sea bass and red snapper (both were filleted and the skins were removed).

Can you put frozen fish in fish soup?

If quality fresh fish is not available to you, you can use frozen wild fish. I prefer to thaw the fish in the fridge overnight and use it per the recipe, but you can add it to the soup while still frozen and allow the fish to thaw and fully cook in the soup (it will take a little bit longer, somewhere around 6 to 7 minutes or so)

You can also use shell fish like shrimp or bits of lobster tail in this recipe, added in with the fish toward the end of cooking time.
