Thick Fish Soup “A La Vatersay” Recipe

|

Traditional Belgian fish stew (waterzooi), previously considered a food of the fishermen who could not afford the meals that are caught. This is a thick, rich fish soup with vegetables, egg yolks and cream. Wrote: “A la”, because the site has a lot of “experts” of cooking, who will protest the authenticity of the recipe. I did with digressions, as I did not have all the necessary products available. But the taste didn’t get any worse. It is very flavorful and delicious!

Fish Soup with Vegetables Recipe

For the broth, I used the carcass of a large pike – before that, I cooked salted and stuffed, the fillet and head were gone, the spine remained. And as the main fish I took a small pink salmon-700-800 grams, or rather I will not say: I did not weigh it. I also used mushrooms that were left over from another dish: for stuffed mushrooms, only the caps were needed, the legs were left. So they came in handy.

Gumbo with Cod Recipe

Gumbo or Gumbo is a dish of American cuisine common in the state of Louisiana. It is a thick soup with spices, similar in consistency to a stew. It is considered a heritage of Cajun cuisine, descendants of French immigrants who arrived in Canada in the XVIII century. Gumbo can be thick like a stew and served on a pillow of rice, or it can be more liquid like a soup. I prepared the second version, based on a recipe from Gostronom magazine.
