At our local grocery store when they have a special on fresh Halibut, and it says "whole" once the fish is cut up, the backbone, and tail pieces are discarded to be thrown away. This makes the best soup stock and is meaty enough to make a wonderful chowder. Ask if you could have some. They did it the last two times I have seen the fish on sale. I got two pots of halibut chowder stock and it was free! This also works for salmon.

This is what I would call 'restaurant quality soup.' Very good! You will love this soup if you like seafood, which I definitely do!


  • 1 fresh or frozen fish fillet such as salmon, orange roughy or cod
  • 1/2 of 24 oz. pkg. frozen hash brown potatoes with onions and peppers
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 can cream of shrimp or potato soup
  • 1/4 cup cooked bacon pieces
  • 3/4 tsp. dried dill weed or fresh dill
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 jar diced pimento, drained (2oz.)


Thaw fish if frozen. Rinse and drain. Cut fish into 1 inch pieces. Set aside. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, combine potatoes and water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in evaporated milk, condensed soup, bacon, dill weed and pepper. Return to boil. Add fish and pimento; reduce heat.


Cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes more or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. To serve, ladle into serving bowls. If desired, sprinkle with additional fresh dill.

Low fat milk and clam juice are the secrets to the lower fat and saturated fat content of this satisfying supper soup.
