    I was hoping for soup made with this: http://www.afriendyoucaneat.com/

    But your soup looks just dandy all the same.

    Somehow when I read "Swedish Fish" I started thinking of the candy and
    until I began to read the recipe, I thought the soup would be made with
    candy Swedish Fish. I think it's time I go to bed. <g>

    It was quite good. Our niece, who is a Swedo-phile made it for one
    dinner when the extended family was here in the Rockies skiing last
    week. I don't remember how many multiples of the recipe she made,
    but it was enjoyed by all, even the non-fish eaters.

    As far as the video--what's with the guy with the boxer shorts on his
    head? Most Swedes I know (and I know a LOT) aren't quite that
    free-spirited, nej!

    Sorry to all of you who mentioned that. I probably should have
    retitled it "Fish Soup from Sweden".

    How does this differ from chowder? (And where do you get a fish
    bouillon cube?)

    1) No bacon or onions? Just a guess.

    2) I've seen 'em at the Asian markets. Knorr brand, I think -- yellow
    box, oversized bouillon cubes. Or you can use chicken bouillon and boil
    a handful of shrimp shells (or heads) in it.

    1. I have no idea. I didn't name it. They probably don't have a word
    for chowder in Swedish.

    2. I got mine in a supermarket in Stockholm. Want me to send you a
    couple? They add quite a good flavor. I suppose you could always use
    shrimp-shell broth or bottled clam juice.

    3. Do you want people to post recipes or not?

    the better than bouillon people evidently also put out a clam and a lobster
    base:

    <http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&search-alias=grocery&field-brandtextbin=Better%20Than%20Bouillon>

    it seems to me also there is a jarred fish bouillon (powdered in jars like
    beef or chicken) that i see in my grocery, possibly in the hispanic food
    section. maybe cubes, too. if you're interested, email me and i'll send
    you some.

    Knorr and Sázon brands make a shrimp bouillon that can be found in the
    Latino sections of food stores. Warning: it is very salty!

    I save shrimp shells in the freezer for home made shrimp stock. Usually
    (if I can get there), I'll hit the asian market for head on shrimp when
    I'm ready to make shrimp stock, then use the heads for it along with the
    collected shells.

    It comes out WONderful.

    You don't really need the heads (the shells are enough) but it makes for
    a slightly richer stock.

    You didn't name it, but you're from the east, aren't you? (Or did I
    flub another memory? :-/ )

    I'll look for fish cubes locally, p'raps. No need to send although I
    appreciate the offer.

    Would you use more than one kind of fish in the recipe?

    Do I want people to post recipes? Sure, why not? It's a cooking
    group, according to its stated purpose and charter. Better posts about
    recipes than most of the other crap that's so frequent here. I don't
    like the rfc book being posted here as was being done; a number of
    people articulated reasons agin it better than I could have and I agree
    with what they said. I disagree with zxcvbob's objection about posting
    recipes. When I read the group, I look at new thread subjects first
    then frequently look to see what favorite posters have had to say about
    it. I sometimes stop looking at the thread after about 5 replies, and I
    sometimes don't start reading a thread until after about 20 replies. :-)

    Why not just make a home made fish stock? I have a bunch of shrimp
    shells I need to get out of the freezer and I was thinking of making a
    seafood soup with the stock this time instead of rice like I usually do.
    :-)

    I just have to think of a low carb substitute for the potatoes.

    Water chestnuts might do and I just bought 3 cans of them...
