Autumn in Finland is pretty awful. There might be occasional sunny days, but 95% of time it’s rainy, cold and getting darker every day. So comfort food is a big thing. My favorite (which I don’t really eat at the moment because of the diet) is Coconut-chili prawn-fish soup. It’s simple and quick to do, I use this ready made fish soup mix (fish and veggies and potatoes from a frozen bag, yummy) so it’s even quicker.
Coconut-Chili prawn-Fish soup (serves 4 persons)
1 bag (700g) of ready-made-fish soup ingredients
2 dl water
1 can (4 dl) coconut milk
1 table spoon of lemon juice
1 bag (170g) prawns
1 tea spoon of chili powder
1 table spoon of oil
1. Heat up the water and half of the coconut milk and thrown in the frozen fish soup things. Let it boil for 5 min, and add rest of the coconut milk and lemon juice.
2. Heat the pan and the oil, fry the prawns (melt and dry them first) and season with chili powder.
3. Mix the prawns into the soup and eat while it’s hot 🙂
