fish soup

This recipe is from my late mom
It's my all time favorite soup :)

Here's how I cook it

Heat 2 Tabsp cooking oil in a medium pot

while the oil is heating up throw in 1 cinnamon stick, 5 cloves, 1 star anise, 10 fenugreek 
and let the aroma of the spices infused your kitchen and your home

add 1 sliced onion and sautee together with the spices

add in 2 garlic and finely sliced 1/4" ginger stirring well

then add in 2 sliced tomatoes and 1 green chilly (slit in the middle)

pour in 2 cups water and let it boil

when the tomatoes are cooked add in 1 teasp of salt

mix well and add 2 pieces of John Snapper fish or "Jenahak"

simmer for 10 minutes taste the salt and off the fire

garnish with coriander and scallion just before serving

serve hot :)

a word on the fish
the John Snapper was the only suitable fish I had in the fridge for this recipe
alternatively, Red Snapper and Kurau would make a delicious substitute as well
