Rustic Winter Cod Soup with Vegetables

I picked this recipe up on holiday in Main and was inspired to make my own version of it. I hope you enjoy making it for family and friends - it's superb for Sunday lunch.

Cod with Vegetables 1

Cod used to be considered a cheap option, but it has been over fished and is now relatively scarce and a lot more expensive. It is a succulent fish with white flaky flesh and lends itself to most cooking methods.

Cod with Vegetables 2

Serves:  2 - 3
Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic gloves, finely chopped
  • 1 medium red or white onion, sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and julienned
  • 1 yellow pepper, julienned
  • 1 1/2 lb. fresh cod, 
  • 1 cup clam juice
  • 3 Tbsp. parsley, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • chopped scallions and parsley to serve

Cod with Vegetables 3


In a large deep saucepan, heat the olive oil and pan-fry the garlic and onion for one minute over a medium heat. Add carrots and yellow pepper and cook a little more for about 5 minutes. Cut fresh cut into large chunks. Add cod and parsley to the pan with vegetables. Pour in clam juice and lemon juice. Add seasonings. Return to the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, until the cot is tender. Serve in warm bowls with chopped parsley and scallions.
