Spicy Prawn and Cod Soup

    40 minutes

    Try this low-fat fish soup. I like foods spicy, but you can adjust the seasonings to taste. Other whitefish can be substituted for the cod, too.

    This soup tasted great but looked yuk. The yoghurt curdled! Why?? I followed the recipie exactly except the amount of chilli was reduced.  -  09 May 2012


    I happened to have every single ingredient in the house except for the yogurt, but I made it anyway. Oh my goodness, this soup was WONDERFUL! I can guarantee I will be making this soup often. It reminds me of my grandmother, who was from interior Mexico. My cooking this dish would have made her proud! Excellent!  -  12 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was looking for a good, low fat, fish soup and LOVE this one! I made a couple of tweaks (I don't eat shellfish so only used cod, used veg broth instead of chicken, red bell pepper instead of green and used fire roasted tomatoes, and added so chipotle chili pepper for heat and flavor). The heat and the cumin flavor make this soup fabulous and I never would have put all of these flavors together with cod, so hats off to the recipe creator!  -  08 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
