This Greek Halibut Soup is warm and flavorful, making it perfect for the cold weather. It’s a great addition to your weeknight meal plan, but is also great for holiday entertaining if seafood is a part of your traditions!
Featuring Greek-inspired flavors, fresh halibut fillets from Heinen’s Seafood Department are cut into chunks and cooked in Heinen’s vegetable broth that is flavored with paprika, oregano, bay leaf and fire-roasted tomatoes. The soup is finished with Heinen’s pre-spiralized zucchini, from the Produce Department, fresh herbs and crumbly soft feta cheese.
I like to serve this soup as a main dish during the week with crusty bread or as a beautiful first course at a holiday gathering. It comes together really quickly, which makes it perfect for any occasion.
You can modify this soup by using any semi-firm white fish, a variety of spices like Italian seasoning, cumin or chili powder or beans like white beans or chickpeas.
