Homemade soup will be almost like the real thing if you remember fishing. You always want hot soup, although it is not always possible to go fishing.
Someone will say that soup is not prepared in the kitchen, and they will be absolutely right. For soup, you need nature, a bonfire, light fog over the water. But it is not always possible to go out into nature. The modern world is intense and complex. Everyone is rushing somewhere, a lot of work.

And I want soup, occasionally. In principle, it is worth doing a fish day at home sporadically. Homemade soup is prepared simply. Well? Let it not be soup, but fish soup, but it is necessary.
After successful fishing, heads and tails always remain. It’s certainly not salmon soup, but it’s also delicious.
There are several opinions on how to prepare classic soup. First: soup is always prepared from one type of fish. That is why there is salmon soup, pike soup, trout soup, carp soup, perch soup, grayling soup, zander soup, crucian soup, catfish soup, sturgeon soup, carp soup, salmon soup, bream soup, saury soup, cod soup, roach soup, pollock soup, cod soup, mackerel soup, pelengas soup, carp soup, minnow soup, roach soup.
The second opinion and the second technology allow cooking soup from many types of fish mixed or in numerous stages. For example, small fish are first boiled, and then pricier and tasty are cooked in this broth. Yushka, the recipe of which includes changing three portions of fish, is called triple soup. Yushka royal is prepared according to the same principle, however, in chicken or even mushroom broth. Yushka, the recipe of which involves cooking it in chicken broth, is also called rooster soup.
So, homemade soup from heads, at home in the kitchen — improvisation.

But it is not always possible to go out into nature. The modern world is intense and complex. Everyone is rushing somewhere, a lot of work. And I want fish soup, sporadically.

- Fish (heads, tails) – 1 kg.
- Carrot – 1 pc.
- Celery or parsley root – 1 pc.
- Onion – 1 pc.
- Potatoes - 1–2 pcs.
- Garlic 1–2 cloves
- Salt, black pepper, allspice, cloves, bay leaf, coriander – to taste
- Parsley greens - 3–4 sprigs
Homemade soup is always a memory of fishing. Pour 2 liters of water into the pot. While the water is boiling, throw all the spices into the pan and add a little salt.
Add spices: 10–12 pieces of black pepper, allspice 2-3 pcs., coriander 0.5 tsp. In addition, cloves 1-2 pcs. and 2 bay leaves.
Peel the carrot and cut it into thick circles, or simply cut it in half. Celery root (parsley root can be added, but be careful – it gives a bit of bitterness) throw it whole if it is small. Or cut off a piece from the big root. Peel the onion and slightly, literally a quarter of the height, cut crosswise.
When the water boils, let the spices and root boil for 15 minutes. Remove the celery and bay leaf.
Subsequently, throw the peeled and cut into 4–6 parts of potatoes into boiling water. Discard the boiled onion. Add garlic – the cloves should be slightly flattened with the block of a knife.
Boil potatoes for 10–12 minutes. Then put the fish in the soup.
Usually, the fish is heads and tails, unless something a little better has been specially left in the soup. We have pike and zander heads. Well, sometimes we also buy sets of trout and salmon.
By the way, if homemade soup is cooked with red fish, you should throw in half a lemon without squeezing. Then pull out the lemon and throw it away.
After placing the fish, it is better not to stir the soup and not to let the liquid boil.
Cook the soup for 15–20 minutes. On a small fire, so that the homemade soup boils slightly.
Then you can pull out the carrot. It is up to you to leave the cooked carrots in the soup or not. For example, I like carrots.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
At this stage, you can put pieces of raw good fish in the soup - zander, trout, etc. After this fish is cooked, you can put it on everyone's plate, a piece at a time.
Add finely chopped parsley. While the homemade soup is boiling, add 2 more bay leaves.
Immediately remove the soup from the heat and let it stand for 10 minutes. At the end, you can add 50 grams of vodka to the soup, but it is better to do this when you are in nature. If the soup is homemade and for the family, it is hardly worth doing so. In principle, no one forbids simply pouring a glass for those who want to.
Remove the fish from the soup and place it on a separate plate. Thereafter, pour the soup into plates and eat with fresh bread.
Be sure to put a salt shaker and ground black pepper on the table.
Homemade soup is nothing complicated, especially if there is fish.
Use the tails and heads of the fish to make the broth, and leave the fish fillets and ribs for the finale!
