Salad Menu - Fish Soup (Ukha)

A bowl of halibut soup

Halibut soup is light and filling. It is made from halibut, water and vegetables. Although you can use other kind of fish, I think halibut is a better choice because of the light texture it has. This soup also great if anyone is sick, instead of the regular chicken noodle soup, this halibut soup is filled with immune boosting ingredients and light on the stomach. Halibut is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Your body needs fatty acids to function well. In addition, halibut also provides vitamin A, B vitamins, calcium, iron and zinc.
