Hearty Asian Sliced Fish Soup Recipe

This sliced fish soup recipe is similar to Christine’s sliced fish mee sua but using cod and a handful of other flavorings too. Living in Singapore and always on the look-out for yummy yet healthy local foods, the sliced fish soup is one of my go-to hawker choices as it’s one of the rare healthier options. This home-cooked replica is a great even healthier version of the hawker dish. The cod fish is a nice indulgence, being one of the more expensive fishes in Singapore supermarkets, but so worth it for the creamy, delicate-textured and mild taste that the cheaper batang fish just can’t quite deliver. If you’d like the creaminess that hawkers use with evaporated milk, make sure you use low-fat evaporated milk to splash in!

Easy one pot cod soup in under 30 minutes. Fresh, delicious and healthy.
