The flavors in this soup create a warm and soothing meal. A generous plate of sliced avocados is a typical accompaniment. Use an aged European Muenster for the best results.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt the butter or margarine in a large saucepan, and add the paprika. Saute the onions in this mixture until they are soft. Add the water, bring it to the boil, and add the potatoes. Simmer gently until the potatoes are almost done. Depending on the size of the potatoes it may be necessary to add more water during cooking.

  • Add cream or milk and the fish; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until potatoes begin to fall apart. If they remain very firm, mash them gently in the pan with a masher or wooden spoon.

  • Add a little of the potato mixture to the beaten eggs, and then stir eggs into the soup. Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese. Correct the seasoning, and serve at once.

The title of this stew doesn't sound good but this soup is TASTY! I used 3 yukon gold potatoes and it was thick enough. Perfect for a cold winter night. Read More

Fantastic! I added some fresh garlic and a few other seasonings (I recommend just seasoning it with whatever you like, as I don't think that just paprika would be enough) and added some frozen broccoli and cauliflower when the potatoes were almost done. I also used Flounder fillets instead of Cod and Colby Jack and Parmesan cheese instead of Muenster... My mother was recently put on a diet by her doctor for her cholesterol, so I used all low fat ingredients (I can't believe it's not butter, 1% milk and low-fat/no-fat cheese) and it was still fantastic. A great way to get her to eat the fish that the doctor told her to eat! This recipe makes enough for several meals and still tastes great warmed up. Read More

Very thick and delicious soup! I cut the recipe in half, added garlic, shredded carrot, and red pepper flakes for more flavour, and used dover sole fish and shredded mozzarella, asiago, and cheddar cheeses. I altered the recipe according to what I had (and preferred, like garlic), but I think I'll make it as is sometime in the near future. Still, it turned out fantastic! Read More

This was a great recipe! I used haddock instead of cod and added some spices (black and red pepper) as well as some cloves of fresh garlic. It turned out great--"creamy smooth melts-in-your-mouth" says my husband. I accidentally added a bit too much butter and this was a "mistake" worth making! Read More

This soup is creamy delicious and filling. I followed the recipe exactly although next time I might use a splash of white wine. This would also be great with langostinos and white wine and scallions. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

This is great! I only did two things different but everything else I followed. I realized I didn't have cream so I used 2% milk same amount and I didn't add the fish I wanted to try it w/out it. This was amazing! I put the salt in at the end. When i served I added bacon on top and a little cheese and this was better than any restraurant! I'm doing this again! Read More
