Halibut Soup Recipe
Recipe is simple and straightforward. Preheat some olive oil in suitable pot, add chopped onions and single minced garlic clove. Mix slowly until everything gets golden-brown color.
Then add potatoes (cut to slices or cubes) and fry them few minutes on low to medium heat. Add fish, some salt, pepper and if you like, some Mediterranean dried herbs mix and fry everything for few more minutes, mixing gently (preferably shaking the pot).
Then add some (1dcl) of good white wine and enough water to cover everything with liquid.
Let everything boil on low heat until potatoes are done. Turn off the heat and let it cool and settle little bit down.
Serve warm with some chopped parsley and freshly minced garlic. If you don't like fresh garlic, simply avoid it. Also, this meal served as main dish can be consumed with some whole grain bread and some good white wine.
