Tweeked to my liking. Originally called for pureeing, but I don't think a fish soup/stew should be pureed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot; saute the onions, celery, garlic, paprika, tumeric and coriander until soft and fragrant.
  2. Add the broth, raw fish, tomatoes, potatoes, saffron and bay leaf.
  3. Bring to a soft boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until potatoes are tender and fish flakes (about 15 minutes). The fish should fall into pieces with stirring.
  4. Remove the bay leaf.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.

this soup turned out so good. i used mahi mahi, added about half a can of tomato juice and a habanero and it is great!

This was a very pleasant soup and a nice change from regular fish. All five of us ate it, even the toddlers.
