==> Greek Fish Stew
When I first made this recipe all I had was Salmon in my freezer. Rather than going out and buying Catfish or Cod, as the recipe calls for, I just made it the same way, substituting it with Salmon.
This is probably why the soup in my image above, has a little grease-like film on the top.
Salmon is higher in “good fats” than most fish, but it was absolutely delicious and a great source for protein.
Cooked Salmon has…
** 22 grams of protein per 3 ounces!
In the second week, I made this same recipe and used codfish as the recipe called for. I enjoyed it, but not as well as I did with the Salmon.
Both are healthy fish, but one has more fat and calories than the other.
But if you haven't noticed already, Salmon is my favorite fish to eat.
Try out my “Oven-Baked Salmon Foil Pack with Shrimp” some time!
It's another favorite of mine!
Let's get to the Greek Fish Stew recipe, shall we…
- 1 small red potato, diced
- 2 cups Basic Vegetable Soup
- 4 ounces skinless catfish or cod, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tablespoon Fresh Dill, chopped
- 2 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
- In a medium saucepan add diced red potatoes and water to cover. Heat to boiling then cover and reduce the heat to simmer for 5 minutes or until tender.
- Pour off the water.
- Add 2 cups basic vegetable soup and fish. Heat to boiling. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 3 minutes or until fish turns opaque.
- Gently stir in chopped fresh dill.
- Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese before serving.
Eat & Enjoy!

Best of health,
All of these recipes are great, but the berry yogurt crunch for breakfast drizzle with honey sounds like a winner. I always eat healthy, and since breakfast is the most important meal of the day the recipe is a winner. Thanks so much.
I’m glad to hear the berry yogurt crunch sounds appealing to you. It makes for a very healthy breakfast and it’s pretty tasty.
I think it’s great that you are a healthy eater and hope that you will enjoy these recipes when you try them.
Best of health,
I tried the cabbage soup diet a long time ago and it did work. However, I must confess it was boring and I eventually left it.
I like to have some flexibility, but I’m more of a “structure” person. I like to have a guide and having lists comes in handy.
About this diet, is this something you would do to drop some pounds or is it something sustainable in the long run? I’m curious about it. I know most fad diets aren’t healthy or sustainable. It’s always recommended to change our eating habits, although it’s easier said than done.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your feedback. It is easy to get bored when on the same diet for long periods of time, however, this soup diet is far from boring.
I truly love the food and feel healthier from eating the food recipes on the seven-day plan.
I have found that while on this diet, I no longer get constipated and stay less bloated now. The whole-grain foods in this plan keep my digestion working much better than before.
I’ve only lost a few pounds over the last couple of weeks, but during the holidays it is very hard to lose weight. I’ve cheated a lot, by eating sweet desserts, gravy on mashed potatoes, and sweet tea. LOL, It’s very hard to resist those types of foods and drinks during Thanksgiving and now Christmas.
I look forward to continuing this diet after the new year and successfully losing weight and keeping it off.
Please stay in touch and we can support each other during new weight loss journeys.
Best of health,
