This ‘White Fish & Potato Garlic Soup’ is absolutely versatile. I seasoned it with Salt & Pepper, but you can add some Chilli as well. OR you can add Curry Powder. You may wish to add Tomato. You can season it with Miso or Soy Sauce instead of Salt & Pepper. You can add Spring Onion instead of Parsley. How would you like to cook this soup?


2 Servings


250g White Fish Fillets *thawed if frozen, e.g. Whiting, Blue Grenadier, Hoki, Hake, Cod, etc.
Salt & Pepper
1/2 Onion *thinly sliced

1 tablespoon finely chopped Parsley

Additional OR Alternative Ingredients
Curry Powder
Miso OR Soy Sauce
Spring Onion OR other Herbs

  1. Cut Fish Fillets into chunky pieces, season with Salt and Pepper, and set aside.
  2. Heat Oil in a large saucepan, cook Onion and Garlic until soft. *Note: If you add Curry Powder, add it now.
  3. Add Potato pieces, Stock and Chilli (if you add it), and bring to the boil. *Note: If you add Tomato, add it now.
