Fisherman Soup

This savory soup is filled with Tilapia, shrimp and veggies in a scrumptious tomato broth!


I didn’t always love seafood, in fact in my high school years and earlier I would not go near it. I am not really sure when I decided to give it a GO.. but boy was I missing out!

Now that I have expanded my edible horizon with those things that swim in the water .. its an unparalleled journey of what I can make with it.

When I came across this recipe from cookin’ canuck I knew I was going to have to give it a try. This soup is so flavorful and you can play around with different veggies to your liking.


Recipe as follows:


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded & diced
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 Choyote, diced
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ⅛ – ¼ tsp dried red chile flakes
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 can (28 oz.) petite diced tomatoes
  • ¾ cup vegetable broth or chicken broth will work too
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1¼ lb. firm white fish ( I used Tilapia)
  • ½ lb. medium shrimp, shelled
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Add in onion, garlic, red bell pepper, choyote and carrot. Cook until fragrant and just tender.
  2. Add the oregano and chile flakes, and cook for 1 minute. Add in wine, Diced tomatoes and Vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.
  3.  Once broth is simmering dd the tilapia and cook until cooked through about 5 minutes. Add in shrimp and cook another 2-3 minutes.. as shrimp cooks fast. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Enjoy!! xoxo.
