Asian Inspired Fish Soup or Chicken Soup or Prawn Soup. You get the idea...

So, it’s the end of the week, I’m scratching around in the fridge wondering what I was going to cook with my blackfish fillets. I wasn’t feeling the love for what I had originally planned and to be honest the veggies were beginning to look a little boring. But I was starving and really wanted something super tasty. Here’s what I came up with from what I had left in the fridge….

End of the week Asian inspired Fish Soup

End of the week Asian inspired Fish Soup

Eleven ingredients:

  • 250 gms blackfish (or any protein that takes your fancy)

  • 200 gms cauliflower

  • a small handful of kale

  • 1 lonely shallot

  • 3 little homegrown roma tomatoes

  • about a 1.5cm knob of ginger

  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric

  • Himalayan rock salt to taste, I used a teaspoon

  • a sprinkle of chilli flakes

  • juice of 1 lime

  • a sprig of parsley to garnish


Throw everything except the fish into the pot and bring to the boil. Then toss the fish in and cook until the fish flakes apart easily. Done. Start to finish 15 minutes. Dinner or lunch on the table.

Make sure to throw your chicken in from the start if using and check after 15 minutes to ensure it is cooked through. Slicing it really thin will help it cook faster.
