Had some grouper and red snapper from the Big E trip and wanted to make some soup....here's what I did....

I took a big piece of grouper backbone, a grouper throat and a red snapper throat to make the stock for a really tasty soup tonight.

I added salt, pepper, parsley, ginger root pieces, bay leaves and a whole chopped onion to the stock. (You should strain the fish stock before adding the herbs and spices to get bones, scales and cartliage out of the soup). I cooked some Jasmine rice in fish stock and added some chunks of grouper and snapper into the soup.

When serving, I placed some diced tomatoes, chopped green onion, a little more parsley, a slice of lemon and cubes of avocado at the bottom of a bowl. I then ladled the fish stock and chunks over the items in the bowl and served it piping hot. With a squeeze of lemon over the soup....I was in fish soup heaven. Great stuff!!

I've used lemon grass before....but...what is kefir?
Made more soup tonight....dropped a bag of Zatarain's crab boil into the soup that I made yesterday....wow...pretty good!

I thought about grilling the ribs...but we had lots of fish to clean and didn't make time to carve them out.

I am not a big soup eater, but that soup sounds great. I think I would llike too have a bowl of that on a cold winter weekend when it's too rough to get offshore.........

Richard, That does sound good.. the last fish soup I had was in Costa Rica..
We caught a big cow dorado that was full of eggs and had the ladies at the bar make us some fish egg soup.. That was prettty tasty..as well(after you got used to the texture of the fish eggs.
