Fish Soup with Cod and Tomatoes

Cod is perfect for everyday life when time is scarce, the family is hungry and you need a healthy, quick and tasty dinner.

But cod is also perfect for party food. Put cod on the table when family or friends get together for a nice meal and a good atmosphere is guaranteed. With its firm white fish meat and its delicate flavor, the cod suits perfectly for both everydays and party.

600 g [1,3 lb] cod fillet without skins and bones
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
4 spring onions
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons tomato purée
6 dl [1,2 pt] fish broth
¼ teaspoon turmeric
2 dl [0,4 pt] cream
1 ½ dl [0,3 pt] canned tomatoes
salt and pepper


Cut the cod in pieces of about 1 inch. Finely chop the onion and garlic and cut the spring onions in thin slices. Saute the onion in butter  until soft and add garlic, onion, tomato purée and fish broth. Let it boil for about 5 minutes, sprinkle with turmeric and mix well. Add cream and canned tomatoes and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add the cod pieces and let the soup simmer over low heat until the fish is done, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle with herbs just before serving and serve the soup with fresh bread.
