Change up the way you serve seafood with this hearty fish soup.

Ingredients

Servings  4  

  • 1 tsp. canola or corn oil
  • 1 medium green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 medium carrot (quartered lengthwise, chopped)
  • 1/2 medium onion (chopped)
  • 14.5 oz. canned, no-salt-added, diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 1 cup water
  • ounces baking potatoes (peeled, diced)
  • 1 tsp. salt-free Cajun or Creole seasoning blend
  • 3 thin mild white fish fillets, such as tilapia or catfish (about 4 ounces each), rinsed, patted dry, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 teaspoon light tub margarine
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the bell pepper, carrot, and onion for 3 minutes, or until the onion is soft, stirring frequently. Stir in the tomatoes with liquid, water, potato, and seasoning blend. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until the potato pieces are tender.
  2. Gently stir in the fish. Cook, covered, for 5 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove from the heat.
  3. Fold in the margarine and salt, being careful not to break up the fish. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes so the flavors blend. Ladle into soup bowls.

Keep it Healthy: If you have difficulty finding salt-free Cajun or Creole seasoning, make your own no-sodium variety in seconds. Just stir together 1/2 teaspoon each of chili powder, ground cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper, and, if you wish, 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne (this makes just over 1 tablespoon of the blend). While you have the ingredients out, you may want to double or triple the amounts and keep the extra blend in a container with a shaker top so you can easily sprinkle some on seafood, poultry, meat, and vegetables.
