Fish Soup Recipe, a la Thai: Nutrient-Dense and Delicious

fish soup recipeFish soup is at the top of my list of comfort foods … not any kind of soup but the one made with my bone broth, which my unique fish soup recipe calls for.  Bone Broth  is loaded with collagen, minerals and protein. It’s part of my protocol and my recommendation to the women in my free and private online community.

Fish Quality 

Not all kinds of fish are created equal. Unfortunately in today’s world, a lot of fish has been raised in “farm” setting which means the fish is not in its natural environment and not fed its natural food.

The best type of fish to aim for is  “wild”   fish which is much higher in nutrients and less toxic to our body than farm raised.  Simply – “wild” fish eat its natural source of food and live in its natural habitat.

Farm raised fish is mostly feed grains or seeds which are unnatural for fish altering its composition thus making it less nutrient dense and in most cases, unhealthy for us to eat. The bottom line is stick with how nature intended people and animals to do… not what modern society has created. If you want to know more about this topic, read this post .

Nutrient Dense Fish Soup Recipe

How do you combine the power of fish and bone broth ?

Fish soup! If your bone broth is already prepared, your fish soup will take you no more than 10 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to cook.

Such an easy week day meal! I created this fish soup recipe to be very flexible with many ingredients so it can be adapted to what you have in the fridge/ freezer.

So enjoy!
