Fish soup with fennel – it is something average between Russian fish soup and the famous French soup Bouillabaisse. Preparing is quite simple, however it turns out – simply delicious.

Description of preparation:

I’ve always wanted to cook a Bouillabaisse at home, but didn’t dare – after all, its preparation is quite complicated and takes a lot of time. At the same time, I love the banal, but incredibly delicious Russian soup. Crossed two recipes and I got a very tasty fish soup with fennel. Fish soup with fennel that is as delicious and rich as a Russian ear, but thanks to the more luxurious ingredients on the table looks richer. I recommend to try!
