Smoked catfish soup
  • 800 g hot smoked catfish
  • 1 large head of fennel
  • 2 large bell peppers (red and yellow)
  • 2 large onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 300 ml cream, 20-30% fat
  • salt, freshly ground black pepper
  • melted butter


Step 1
Disassemble the catfish into fillets, put the skin and bones in a saucepan.
Step 2
Wash and peel all vegetables, and place all peels (including the stems and fennel bottom) in the pot. Pour 1 liter of water over the contents of a saucepan, put on medium heat, bring to a boil and cook for 30 minutes. Strain the broth.
Step 3
Chop the onion and garlic finely. Heat some oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, sauté the onion and garlic for 10 minutes.
Step 4
Cut the bell peppers into neat squares and fry them separately in a frying pan in oil, 5-7 minutes. Set aside a couple of tablespoons of pepper for garnish. Transfer the remaining pepper to the onion.
Step 5
Add chopped fennel and cumin into a saucepan, fry for 3-4 minutes. Pour in the broth, bring to a boil, put half of the catfish pulp, cook for 10 minutes.
Step 6
Grind the soup with a blender in mashed potatoes, pour in the cream. Season with salt and pepper. Warm up, pour into plates. Place the fish pulp and the set aside roasted peppers in each. Add more pepper and serve.
