Moroccan fish soup recipe

A tasty soup with chickpeas, saffron, spring onions, tomatoes and special Ras El Hanout seasoning – and under 10g fat per person.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 15 mins | Total time: 25 mins


1litre (1¾ pints) hot fish stock (use 2 fish stock cubes)
Large pinch of saffron threads
410g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 level tbsp Ras El Hanout Moroccan seasoning
400g (14oz) prime cod/haddock fillets, cut into chunks
4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
2 large ripe tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and cut into strips
Handful of fresh coriander leaves per person


1. Put the stock, saffron and chickpeas in a large, deep pan. Bring to the boil and simmer for a couple of minutes.

2. Spread the Ras El Hanout seasoning out on a plate and roll the chunks of fish in it to coat well. Add the spring onion to the stock, then use a large spoon to add the fish carefully, and let the fish poach over a low heat for about 3 mins.

3. Add the strips of tomato, heat for another minute, and then serve the soup in warm bowls, sprinkling each with coriander leaves. (Not suitable for freezing).
