  1. I almost made this today, i think i will do it tomorrow.
    I see the original recipe from Healthy Cooking called for canned tomatoes but you did not use them, but is that a tomato i see in the picture?

    I also have a soup similar to this called Spicy Fish Stew.
    12 oz Haddock or Cod
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 tsp vegetable oil
    1 (14 1/2 oz.) can diced tomatoes with green pepper,
    celery and onion.
    1( 11oz) can spicy tomato juice
    1 cup sliced quartered zucchini
    3/4 cup frozen whole kernel corn

    Rinse fish and pat dry.Cut into 3/4 inch pieces.

    In 3 qt saucepan cook onion in hot oil until tender.Stir in
    undrained tomatoes,tomato juice.zucchini and corn.
    Bring to a boil.Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.

    Add fish. Continue cooking 6 more minutes or until fish
    flakes with a fork and zucchini is tender.

    Serves 4.
    3 points.

    You can also substitute cooked shrimp or crab for the fish.Simply add instead of the fish and cook until heated
