I have been searching for a fish soup recipe that was easy and could be prepared on a busy evening.  This fish soup recipe was created using product provided by Gorton’s which makes it not only easy but delicious.  My kids are huge fans of Gorton’s Fish Sticks and enjoy them on busy nights when I don’t have time to cook from scratch.  I love their new fish fillets that are grilled and not breaded and I have wanted to try their Grilled Salmon for a long time.

I decided to incorporate the Gorton’s Grilled Salmon into this Coconut Fish Soup recipe.   Gorton’s Grilled Salmon is wild caught and gluten free. It contains no MSG, artificial colors or flavors. They are flame-grilled and expertly seasoned with a classic blend of real herbs and spices.

This Coconut Fish Soup recipe is absolutely delicious and you can have it on the table in 15 minutes.  It’s perfect for the night that you are short on time. It’s even better reheated the next day for lunch. Because it is gluten free, it’s a recipe that my daughter can enjoy as well.   I love that the Gorton’s Grilled Salmon is certified gluten free.  It’s one less worry about what to serve.

    As always, beautiful photos. I love coconut shrimp, but have never tried it as a soup. Hmmm....I like that's its quick.  I would try it on a night when the kids are busy and it's just me and hubby. He and I enjoy trying new and exotic foods.
  2. I love this recipe because it is so unique compared to my usual dinners and makes a meal that my family won't say, "Chicken pot pie... again?!" My hubby and son always want me to make more seafood type meals.
  3. I've never tried a coconut fish soup before, I guess it's something like a curry. (My husband loves a plate of hot steaming rice drowning with a coconut fish curry on top.)
  4. This sounds really good and looks pretty simple to whip up, a feature I always appreciate!  Will have to try making soon!
  5. We love Gorton's! What an interesting way to use it. Definitely a great idea!
  6. Wow, a healthy dinner that can be on your table in 15 minutes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, looks delicious. 
  7. I will tell you that I would have never thought of making a fish soup, but it sounds tasty
  8. Kayla @ TheEclecticElement says
    I must say I'm not the biggest fan of coconut but I do LOVE me some salmon. I haven't had it in quite awhile so maybe I should invest in some Gorton's grilled salmon (I love the fact that it's gluten free)!
  9. Kelsey Apley says
    My husband really loves fish, as I am not a fan. We normally have Gorton's on hand for him, and I try to make him fish from time to time, and then I just eat something else. I might try this soup for him next time!! Something new and I bet he would love it! 
  10. I have to say that I would have never dreamed up this recipe, but I think you've sold me on it. Looks yummy!
  11. tara pittman says
    what a great idea for using fish and it looks yummy
  12. We eat A LOT of salmon in my house so this is a recipe I would like to try.  It actually reminds of a Thai soup I have had in the past.
  13. Matthew's Mom says
    What a great recipe and perfect for this time of year when the weather is so cold outside!
  14. Grace Hodgin says
    I love that you are using coconut milk in this such a great flavor to add and I never would have thought to use it. Thanks for the recipie
  15. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says
    I've never heard of a coconut soup before. That's such a unique idea, Ellen!
  16. Ooh that sounds really unique! I LOVE coconut, this sounds scrumptious.....
  17. Lolli @ Better in Bulk says
    The only fish soup I've had is clam chowder (does that even count? lol) and I love salmon, so I might really love this!
  18. Wendy | Around My Family Table says
    What a clever way to use the salmon, I never would have thought of soup. I love that's it's gluten free too!
  19. Felissa (Two Little Cavaliers) says
    I Pinned this so that I hve the link handy when I go to make this. If I had salmon in the house I would be in the kitchen making this now. Thank you.
  20. Oh, that looks really good, Ellen! We like salmon but I can't remember having it in soup before. 
  21. I love fish soup. Sadly I only eat it but once a year on Christmas eve. I should really be making it more because it comes together so quick too. Looks delicious and great for these cold night.
  22. we love seafood and actually have lemon grass growing in the backyard. Looks like an easy recipe!
