Hello, welcome back after a long break from my end. Life and covid happened lol. I hope you had a wonderful holiday.
So, as usual, after every new year, resolutions are set. And when it comes to food, it is diets upon diet.
Personally, I am more committed to making my daily food enjoyable and guilt-free. So here is one of my favourite light soup and fufu dish. I say light because, in Ghana, we usually prepare our soups with diverse protein choices.
Therefore, when there is only one choice of protein being used in making a soup, it is referred as light; as in lighter in texture and more clearer in taste.
You can choose any protein of choice to make this light soup, the recipe is very versatile as most Ghanaian recipes.
Ps. I will highly encourage using any whole fresh fish for this recipe because, you can make great stock out of the head, tails, and fins of the fish. It is also best to fillet the fish and rid of the risks of fish bones. I used sea salmon for this recipe btw.
For this recipe, you will need:
600g of fresh fish(salmon, mackerel or tilapia)
For stock: 1 litre of water bits of carrots, onions, white pepper, salt, and cleaned fish trimmings -head, tail, if filleted bones as well.
1 small onion
1-2 inch size fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves
3 medium-size tomatoes
3-4 small bay leaves
1 habanero chili OPTIONAL
Start cooking stock by boiling all stock ingredients together for 30 minutes.
