A variety of vegetables ensures that this wonderful soup is as healthy as it is delicious. The broth can be prepared a day in advance, ready for adding the fish at the last minute, which is useful when cooking mid-week meals. Planning ahead like this means a healthy dinner can be on the table in minutes.
Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
Ring the changes by using different vegetables – broccoli florets, sliced leeks, sweetcorn, peas and green peppers are all suitable. Add them instead of the courgettes, green beans and yellow pepper in step 2.

Easy and delicious. We're not big fish eaters in our house, but this recipe was perfect for our attempts to eat healthily. Wouldn't change a thing. (Don't tell anyone, but I even ate cold leftovers this morning... it was that good!) - 06 Mar 2013
