Seven soups every Saturday: fish soup recipes

Seven white soup bowls, with six saucers

Every country that borders an ocean, or a really big sea like the Mediterranean, does something different and interesting with fish soup. Here in New England, we love our chowders; our West Coast counterparts love their cioppino. In most fish soups, the fish takes flavor from whatever surrounds it; the dominant flavor might be tomato, or curry, or citrus. By nature, fish soups, whether served hot or cold, feel light and healthy, even when there's a wee bit of cream involved.

These seven fish soups caught my eye this week:

Moroccan fish soup, from Fearless Kitchen

Ecuadorian biche de pescado, from Laylita's Kitchen

Canh chua ca (Vietnamese sour fish soup), from Wandering Chopsticks

Icelandic fish soup, from Icelandic Cooking

White fish miso soup, from La Fuji Mama

Salmon head soup, from Hunter Angler Gardener Cook

Creamy fish soup, from Nami-Nami

I spied this week's seven elegant soup bowls, but only six matching saucers, while snooping around in my friend Mary's kitchen.

If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents', or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.

Here are the ground rules: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please). Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me in one sentence whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.

That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls, one sentence about them. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.

Our "good" china, at my mother's house, had soup bowls this shape. We loved to eat to the bottom of the bowl to see which flower was hiding under the soup. Many soups, but never fish...
