- One piece of halibut (I am terrible at guessing...let's say around a pound)
- 5 small-medium red potatoes (Obviously, I ended up using 4 less than in the picture)
- 1 shallot (OR whatever onion will work, this is what I had in the kitchen)
- 1 tbsp dill
- 32 oz. of chicken broth
- 1 cup of half & half (or cream...or milk)
- Salt and pepper to taste
First, I started the whole thing out by dicing up my shallot and put it in some olive oil to saute. I didn't do it as long as I normally would because I knew it would be cooking within the soup for awhile as well. I cooked them just long enough until they softened up a bit, but weren't completely clear.
After the onions did their thing, I added in the chicken broth, diced potatoes, dill, pepper, and salt. I put this on about a medium-high heat and let it simmer-boil for close to 15 minutes. It doesn't take too terribly long for the potatoes to get soft, but I still wanted them to have some bite.
Finally, I did a really ugly chop on the halibut (I had to take it off the skin and it was just a mess). I combined this along with eeeeverything else. It really only takes the halibut 3-5 minutes to get cooked all the way through. It turns white almost as soon as it hits the hot broth. I love when things are easy.
There you have it, done! It was so easy and REALLY tasty. Again, I was pretty proud on this one. Soups are becoming something that I really enjoy making. Probably because they can be so dang easy. This would be super yummy with a more crusty bread, but I just paired with the some Pillsbury rolls (again, because it is what I had in the kitchen). This ended up making about 5-6 decent sized bowls of soup.
So, the whole fish thing has been good so far. I promise, I won't be blogging about how I cook fish forever. I actually have a few different ideas for the things that I would like to share with you that I hope you'll enjoy too. Until next time. <3
