Day 45: Jack Mackerel Soup

OK, this recipe may sound strange but it's actually very good.  Also, Jack (Pacific) Mackerel is packed with omega-3s.  Three ounces of most species of cooked mackerel provide 1.1 to 1.7 g of omega-3s (except King Mackerel which is high in mercury).

Jack Mackerel Soup
Break fish into bite-size chunks, pour into a small pot, and add water (I usually use 4 cups per large can).  Bring fish and water to boil.  Meanwhile, saute veggies (I used tomatoes and green peppers but would strongly recommend onions and potatoes) in butter.  Add to fish broth.  Add salt to taste.  Tonight, I also added 1 small wedge of Reduced Fat Laughing Cow Tomato Basil Cheese to make soup creamier.  It was yummy and filling!
