Ingredients for Simple Asian Fish Soup with Pan-fried Fish

  • 2-3 fillets of your favorite firm white fish (such as cod, tilapia, or sea bass)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated or minced
  • 2 stalks of lemongrass, bruised or minced
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce (or soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro or Thai basil, chopped for garnish
  • Optional: Fresh chili peppers, sliced (for an extra kick)

Steps to Make Simple Asian Fish Soup with Pan-fried Fish

  1. Prepare the fish: Rinse the fish fillets and pat them dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper. In a skillet, heat some oil over medium-high heat and pan-fry the fish until golden brown on both sides. Set aside.
  2. Sauté the aromatics: In the same skillet or a large pot, add a little more oil if needed. Sauté the onion, garlic, ginger, and lemongrass for a few minutes until the onions are translucent.
  3. Create the flavor base: Add the fish sauce, sugar, and ground turmeric to the sautéed aromatics. Stir well to combine and let the flavors meld for a minute.
  4. Add the broth: Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
  5. Return the fish to the soup: Carefully add the pan-fried fish fillets to the simmering soup. Let the soup continue to simmer for another few minutes to infuse the fish with the flavors.
  6. Taste and adjust seasoning: Take a sip of the soup and check if it needs more salt, pepper, or fish sauce. Adjust according to your taste preferences.
  7. Garnish and serve: Ladle the Simple Asian Fish Soup into bowls and sprinkle with chopped cilantro or Thai basil. If you like a bit of heat, add some sliced fresh chili peppers. Serve hot with steamed rice or your favorite sides.

This Simple Asian Fish Soup with Pan-fried Fish is a perfect balance of flavors. The pan-fried fish adds a crispy texture and depth of flavor to the soup, while the fragrant herbs and spices enhance the overall taste. It’s a comforting and satisfying meal that is sure to warm your soul.
