2 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 large white onion, minced

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 can crushed tomatoes

4 tablespoon tomato paste

½ cup fresh coriander, chopped

2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 cup clam juice

½ cup dry white wine

1000 g white fish such as cod or red snapper- cut into 1 ½-inch chunks

225 g shrimp

2-4 cups water or fish stock

Salt and black pepper - to taste


Preheat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the vegetable oil and diced onions then sauté for 3–4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the minced garlic and sauté for a minute.

Add the dry white wine and whisk to blend. If the stew is too thick, add 2-4 cups of water or as much water as necessary to achieve the appropriate level. Bring it to a low boil once more.

Add the fish and cover the saucepan with a lid then reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-3 minutes

Simmer the shrimp for 3 more minutes after adding them to the saucepan. Add salt and pepper to your desired taste. Serve the fish soup and enjoy.
