I really like making my own fish or assorted seafood soup at home because I can use a fish of my choice (most of the time cod as it’s not fishy) and top with as much ingredients as I want to make it into a hearty, wholesome yet very healthy meal. All we need is a very good chicken stock (preferably fresh than store-bought as the latter contains a lot of sodium) and it is a breeze to turn this Seafood Bee Hoon Soup Recipe into a quick and easy weeknight dinner. Perfect for the busy and health-conscious cook. Enjoy!
