Coconut Fish Soup

Kirby eats a lot of chicken and red meat.  Fish is another healthy option he dearly loves.  I happened to catch some catfish on sale but any white fish would work.  Kirby laps up the broth but you can omit the water if you want a thicker stew.

I freeze this soup in two cup plastic containers for up to three months.  It should last up to seven days in the refrigerator.

I freeze these in ziplock bags. Take out what you will need that morning and let thaw in the refrigerator. When time for supper just pop in the microwave for 20 seconds to warm. Quick, tasty and healthy!
