The World's 11 Best Fish Soups, Chowders, and Stews

The World's 11 Best Fish Soups, Chowders, and Stews

Celebrate National Bouillabaisse day on Dec. 14 with these hearty fish soup, stew, and chowder recipes

A favorite holiday of seafood-lovers and Francophiles everywhere is coming up on Dec. 14: National Bouillabaisse Day.

Born in the French port city of Marseille, bouillabaisse is a boiled fish soup (bouill meaning “to boil,” and baisse meaning “to reduce”) and is said to have originated as a poor fisherman’s stew.

The fisherman would boil the fish — often the bony fish and scraps they couldn’t sell at market — in aromatics, Provençal herbs, wine, and stock. Interestingly, the dish is now known for its elegance and was made famous in fine dining establishments wherein the broth, made thick with the gelatin inside the fish bones, was brought to the table first with the fish served separately on a platter accompanied by a baguette and a side of rouille, a thick, garlicky sauce made with breadcrumbs, saffron, olive oil, and chiles.

Now, it is pretentiously said that a true bouillabaisse can only be created in and around Marseille to achieve the right flavors with the proper ingredients (i.e. fish from the Mediterranean Sea and Provençal-grown herbs). For those of us not lucky enough to be in the Marseille vicinity, here’s a collection of some of our favorite fish soups, including good ol’ American clam chowder, Swedish fisksoppa, and Creole-inspired crawfish stew.

Check it out and celebrate the delicious holiday with a warm bowl of fish soup — whichever variety you are so inclined to make and eat!


Slimming World Fish Chowder Soup - Syn Free

If you remember a couple of weeks ago, I told you that with my recipe experimentations, curiosity can get the better of me and from time to time, I have paid the price and burnt the bottom of my soup maker. Well this week's question was, "can you use instant mashed potatoes in a soup maker?" and the answer is, no you can't.

I have a lot of store cupboard ingredients accumulating on my shelves, but had to transfer everything in to a pan instead. Hey ho, all is not lost, but I do plan on working on a Fish Chowder Soup Maker version very soon. I get regular emails from BBC good food website and recently had one for fish chowder. I haven't in any way looked at the recipe, but I embraced the idea and have craved it ever since now the air is crisp.

So here's a thrifty pan version. Note I always use value frozen white fish fillets from either Aldi or Tesco when creating fish based soups.

Ingredients

3 white fish fillets (defrosted)
1 celery stick, finely sliced
1 small onion, diced
450g potatoes, peeled, quartered and sliced after weighing
150g sweetcorn
Good sprinkling of paprika
Good sprinkling of cayenne pepper
Seasoning
1 bay leaf
400ml skimmed milk (healthy extra)
800ml water
2 fish or chicken stock pots
1tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp lower fat spread (optional and would need to be synned)
