here it is, my version
adapted from my dad’s famous fish soup recipe!
visnja’s fish soup
1 onion (med to large)
olive oil-3-4 tablespoons
tomato fresh or minced, about a small to med can
garlic, a clove sliced finely
3 bay leaves
3 cups chicken broth (I used homemade fish broth, water and white wine)
1-2 tablespoons of vinegar-Balsamic or white wine
salt (quite a bit to taste)
cayenne pepper-to taste(hot)
First sautee chopped onions in olive oil till soft(not burned),then add tomato(paste,fresh or minced),cayenne,a few bay leaves,broken for flavor,sautee for a few minutes together, may add black pepper,garlic. Now comes the fish, shells if you have any, it is better if you have a few different fishes (I used only striped bass)salt and pour 1 to 2 cups of chicken broth. Usually to cover the fish. I like more juice , so I add a bit more depending on a fish. Some is more watery than others.
Cook for about 15-25 minutes, again depending on a fish. I added some octopus,sauteed it first than added fish.
