Introduction: Tasty & Easy Fisherman's Stew (healthy & Quick)

This simple & tasty fish soup recipe takes under 30 min to make and is inspired by Halászlé, a.k.a. Hungarian Fisherman's Stew. It is high in protein and packed with nutrients.

The original recipe requires you to make your own fish stock by using fresh fish carcasses but I simplified the recipe and made this an easy one pot meal dish. I also added jasmine rice to balance out the carb macro of this dish. Lemon juice and parsley are also added for some extra flavor. Fresh fish was used for the traditional stew but I decided to save money by using frozen white fish. It turns out to be a huge winner and really is a great tasty way to cook your frozen tilapia or any other frozen white fish fillet.

You can serve this soup warm but it actually tastes more rich and flavorful if you store them for mealprep and eat them a day or two later. It tastes delicious cold in the summer time but also warm in the winter.
