1/2 Photos of Mexican Fish Soup
This is a delicate fish soup that is slightly stew-like. I discovered this soup while eating in a Mexican restaurant in Chicago. I believe I've "hooked" the recipe or pretty close. Please NOTE: I use Snow's brand of clam juice - it's not too salty. If you use another brand you may have to omit the salt in the recipe.*
