A hearty mix of fish and veggies that will boost your system while keeping your calorie intake low.
Psarosoupa, as the dish is called in Greek, means fish soup. Served warm, this delish and nourishing broth is created by a combination of boiled vegetables and fish.
Carrots, celery, leeks and potatoes can offer their aroma to any fish we choose, seafood mix even, and with a dash of olive oil, let us enjoy one of the healthiest and most loved Greek recipes.
600g fish fillets or seafood mix (red mullet, snapper, cod and/or shrimps, mussels, squid)

10 whole peppercorns
3 medium carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
parsley according to personal liking
1.25 litres water
1 tsp salt

Place the vegetables in a large pot to boil with water on medium-high heat for 15 mins. When you are able to fork the potatoes add salt and boil for another 5 mins.
