Asian style fish soup

Last week,we bought halibut and we were trying to find a nice Asian style  recipe,effortless and quick. So,while I was searching on the internet,I found this recipe,we tried and it was very delicious! I cooked with ingredients that I’ve only heard,but not so familiar with. Sesame oil,rice vinegar and bok choy… Sesame oil is so fragrant and tasty!

Three days now,is rainy in Las Vegas and and what’s better than a soup in rainy day! I tried to make this recipe as a fish soup. As I said, I have seafood allergy,and I can’t consume,fish sauce.

For the soup you’ll need:

  • 1 small head bok choy, thickly sliced, or 4 baby bok choy, ends trimmed
  • 1 red pepper.I add 1 orange,too for extra color!
  • 4 6-ounce halibut fillets,cut in 1-inch chunks.
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3-4 broccoli florets ( Anna loves it,that’s why I put it!)
  • 3 scallions,thinly sliced on a diagonal 
  • zest from half orange
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger root
  • rice noodles

How to make it:

Let a heavy pot or a wok heat and add a little bit of sesame oil,add the veggies,saute them,in a medium heat.



In a bowl put the fish ,add the soy sauce,ginger root,orange zest,rice vinegar and sesame oil and let them marinade for 5 minutes. add them in the veggies. Stir well and if you want little bit of water.

In another pot heat some water and let

the rice noodles for 3 minutes.

After 3 minutes add them in the soup.

Cook the soup with the noodles for another 3 minutes in medium-low heat.

The soup doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to cook! Is so easy and the soup is unbelievably tasty! The sesame oil with the kick of orange zest and ginger is magnificent!
