Winter Chilean Seabass Soup by Avra Madison

Nothing is better on a cold winter day than a steaming bowl of soup. Specifically, a hearty Greek-style fish stew, because no one does fish stews better than the Greeks, right?

For a brief description on classic Greek soup, first things first, it a definite must do for the cooler months. It is simply a dish of boiled vegetables and fish. Using a combination of ingredients such as carrots, celery, leeks and potatoes. Created with light stock where the fish is cooked in the stock along with olive oil. Sounds entirely simple to create, yet it is the simple recipes which are at times the hardest to create.
