Did you ever cook something that you really didn’t think would work, and then it totally blows your mind at how well it came out? Well this is one of those recipes. I know this will be something I will make on a regular basis.
I have finally found something delicious and super easy, that I can do with cod. The only other low calorie cod dishes in my culinary repertoire, is my 160 Calorie Wild Fish Poached in Lime Consomme With Wilted Baby Spinach.
I had tried this soup before a t a restaurant, and I thought I didn’t like it. It had a really fishy taste that seemed to over power the taste of everything.
This Cioppino soup is deliciously subtle. You will taste the lemon juice and wine, and the fresh tomato, and you will have a hint of fish and garlic as a gentle afterthought.
This treat of a soup is so low calorie. We are still having vegetable juices throughout the week, so a healthy, low calorie, protein packed, delicious soup is just the ticket for our weekend treat.
This could be served at a dinner party if you get some crunchy, rustic French bread to serve with it. For a rich creamy fish soup, try my Clam and Wild Cod Chowder.
