Why Is This Recipe So Delicious?
- It only takes a few simple steps to put together! Before adding the spices, start by sautéing the vegetables. Then, before tossing in the fish, whisk together the broth.
- Everything is prepared in one pot! This simple seafood soup is not only easy to prepare but also easy to clean up. You’ll have a whole and delicious lunch with just one pot.
- It’s quite warm and comforting without being overpowering. Most creamy soups can be heavy and make you feel bloated afterward. With a bit of tomato sauce and a can of coconut milk, this soup is colorful and light!
Coconut Cream – This soup is elevated by the addition of coconut milk. Though it’s not required, I strongly suggest adding a can of full-fat coconut milk to your soup. And don’t worry, it won’t give your soup a coconut flavor. It will instead impart an irresistibly creamy, velvety flavor and texture. If you don’t have coconut milk, 1 cup milk or heavy cream would suffice.
Firm White Fish — In my seafood soup, I used cod, but any firm white fish will do! This dish works well with halibut, haddock, or mahi-mahi.
Start by wiping the fish dry with a paper towel before chopping it into even-sized slices. Because they will flake apart when cooked, I recommend cutting them into 2-inch pieces.
- Allow the soup to simmer for a few minutes before tasting and seasoning to taste. This is due to the fact that the flavor takes 30 minutes to develop. After that time has passed, you’ll have a better notion of how your dinner will taste and can season it as desired.
- In this soup, you can use any seafood you choose! My personal favorites are white fish and shrimp, but any seafood would suffice. This recipe would be wonderful with salmon, calamari, or even mussels!
- Serve this soup in whatever way you like. Mine is served with a large slice of crusty bread and a dusting of finely chopped parsley. Enjoy this tasty soup totally on its own for a low-carb dinner!
