Very simple, quick and tasty, popular with my family including children. I always start with an onion, fry it very gently until just soft, before I add the other ingredients. Yummy!

This was easy and very yummy. Make loads and freeze. An easy dinner is just a reheat and grilling of fish fingers away !!

This soup is delicious, the addition of fish fingers as croutons is a great idea which turns the soup in to a filling main meal
