Fish soup is prepared by mixing seafood or fish with stock, vegetables, another liquid, water and juice. Basically, hot soups are obtained by boiling solid ingredients in liquids in a pot till the flavors are extracted forming a broth. Soups are classified into 2 main categories such as thick soups and clear soups. Bouillon and consommé are the established French classifications of clear soups. The classification of thick soups depends upon the type of thickening agent used: cream soups are thickened with béchamel sauce, bisques are prepared from pureed shellfish and vegetables thickened with cream and veloutes are thickened with butter, eggs and cream. The common ingredients used to thicken broths and soups are lentils, rice, grains, flour and other soups include potatoes and carrots. Since early times, fish soups have been prepared. Some serve with large chunks of vegetables or fish left in liquid.
