Fish and asparagus soup




Soups are always so healthy, comforting, and filling. I love to try various varieties of them. This one is inspired by Vietnamese style crab and asparagus soup. Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients:
Asparagus - 4 nos
Fish fillets - 200 grams
Onion paste - 1 tsp
Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Prawn stock cube - 1 nos
Corn starch - 1 tbsp
Water - 2 litres
Salt and pepper for taste
Olive oil - 2 tbsp

Dried herbs like
Sage, chives, parsley, thyme,
basil etc.. (use as per choice)

Method:
Heat oil in a stew pot, add onion and garlic paste and saute for 2-3 min. Add fish fillets broken into chunks and stir well. Add enough water, prawn stock cube, dried herbs and cook for 45 min. Now add asparagus and continue to cook till its done. Finally add the corn starch with constant stirring and turn off the flame when the required consistency is obtained. Add salt for taste. Garnish with some fresh parsley, add a dash of pepper and serve.

Note:
Can add some fresh herbs instead of dried herbs. Can add some chilly sauce, soya sauce etc and serve.
