Comfort Foods: Easy Fish Soup

This is an easy and filling soup that you can whip up, from scratch, in under 15 minutes.

It’s low calorie and low carb, and loaded with veggies.

I used Tilapia, but you can use any mild white fish. I tried salmon and I didn’t like the finished taste.

This works well with shrimp, scallops, even crab or oysters. Any seafood that has a relatively short cooking time 🙂

Easy Fish Soup

  • 1 tsp olive oil, coconut oil, whatever cooking oil you like
  • 1/4 cup diced carrot
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery (leaves included if you like celery flavor)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4oz tilapia, diced
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, rough chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2T hot salsa of your choice (I like Herdez salsa casera)
  • 1/4tsp each: dried thyme, marjoram, salt and pepper (add salt after cooking if needed)

Heat the oil in a pot large enough to hold everything.

Add the onion, garlic, celery and carrots and saute for about 5 minutes, until the veggies are fragrant.

Add everything else and simmer for 10 minutes.

Serve immediately.

**Added salt is not included in the totals.
