Easy Fish Soup
Recipe (Chowder)

This easy fish soup recipe is delicious, healthy and can be prepared in no time. It could as well be called a chowder recipe (thick fish soup) which are quite popular in some parts of the world. There are many

kinds of fish one can use to prepare a satisfying soup. For this fish recipe we decided to purchase a fresh smoked haddock filet. Haddock has lovely white meat and virtually no bones. Another good point to use this fish is the fact that it can be cooked to perfection in less than 10 minutes. So if you are tired after a long hard day and still feel like having some comforting and nutritious food for supper this fish chowder could definitely be a great option for you.
