Total Time
40 Mins
Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups soup, 3 tablespoons tomato mixture, and 1 tablespoon dill)

Talk about packing some heat: This stew is fiery-fantastic, and we absolutely love it. You can alter the spiciness by using a milder pepper (such as banana pepper or Anaheim chile) or adjusting the amounts and types of paprika.

How to Make It

Step 1

Thinly slice chiles; discard stems. Combine 1/2 cup sliced chiles, tomato, and vinegar in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat; swirl until butter foams. Add remaining sliced chiles, leek, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; sauté 3 minutes or until softened. Add tomato paste and sweet and hot paprikas; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, clam juice, stock, and wine. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Add fish; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Ladle soup into shallow bowls; top with tomato mixture. Sprinkle evenly with dill.

Absolutely fantastic! Everyone loved this dish and there was no leftovers. I couldn't find spicy or sweet paprika at the grocery store. I used 1 tbsp Hungarian paprika, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, and 2 tsp smoked paprika instead. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. This is going on the regular rotation. Served with a multi-grain crusty baguette which was perfect and hearty enough to soak up every last drop of the broth. I haven't made a recipe in awhile that I was this enamored with. What really put it over the top was how easy it was to get on the table.
