A Tasty Fish Soup Provencal

Warmth and comfort define the smells and tastes of soup, especially on a cold winter day. This tasty Fish Soup Provencal is perfect for cooler evenings and a healthy way to incorporate fish into your diet.

Provence is a region in the southeast of France, bordering the Mediterranean Sea and Italy. My Fish Soup Provencal includes that Mediterranean touch of olive oil, garlic, and wine. This is a delicately flavored version, with vegetables, fennel seeds, and thyme adding an elegant touch. Serve it with a fresh baguette and a green salad, and voila, you have a delightful meal. It’s simple, quick, and delicious.
