Tomato Fish Soup with Tofu

Submitted by on December 28, 2009 – 8:16 pmOne Comment | 26,367 views
Soup Name: Tomato Fish Soup with Tofu
 
Traditional Chinese Name: 番茄魚湯 (fān qié yú tāng)

Introduction:

Tomatoes are the ideal partner in fish soups.  It helps alleviatesome of the fishy scent as well as bring a sweet and slightly sour taste to the soup.  This soup is ideal for confinements and children (at least one year in age as tomatos are an ingredient that is on the acidic side) and is very neutral and healthy.  There is virtually no fat in the soup and the broth is rich in flavour and nutrients. 

 
What Ingredients are required?

4 medium-sized golden threadfin bream (or any other appropriate substitute)
3 tomatoes
2 large white onions
4 large cubes of soup tofu
2 L of water

1 teaspoon of salt (to marinate the fish)
3-4 thin slices of ginger
1 teaspoon of oil (to fry the fish)

How do I prepare it?

  1. After the fish is cleaned, wipe the fish with paper towels or a cloth to remove excess water
  2. Cover the fish with a small amount of salt (inside and out)
  3. Let it sit for an hour and then drain any water
  4. Peel and cut the tomatoes and onions
  5. Start boiling your soup water
  6. In a pan, add oil and fry the ginger with the fish on low-medium heat (until the fish is completely cooked and the skin is a slightly browned)
  7. Put the fish into a soup bag and add to water
  8. Add tomatoes and onions
  9. Boil on high for at least thirty minutes
  10. Add tofu cubes into soup ten minutes before consumption
  11. Serve and enjoy!

 Any benefits?

  • This neutral soup is ideal for confinements
  • It is also ideal for children (who are able to eat tomatoes)
  • It is highly nutritious, contains no fats and can be used as a soup base for noodles, macaroni and other dishes

Any precautions?

  • Be careful of disintegrated fish bones in the soup – although a filter or fish bag will help

    Hi there,

    I cannot find golden threadfin breams here. What kinds of fishes would be good substitutes? Can I use white bass?

    Thanks!
