Hot and Spicy Fish Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kathy228

I modified this recipe from "The Ocean's Bounty," a little recipe book given to me by a friend from Connecticut. Instead of using whole fish, I used fillets, which cuts the cooking time. I cook only until the peppers are crunchy-done.

I made this for lunch and loved it. I used some Snapper I had in the freezer, used some dashes of Louisianna Hot Sauce in place of the chili peppers and skipped the hominy because I don't believe I have ever seen it in Canada. All that said, this is delish! The clam juice adds a lot to the character of this soup, I used 1/2 and 1/2 wine and water and I thought that worked very well. Thanks for a very good dish!
