  • 2 large onions (about 1½ pounds), peeled and cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • ½ teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 6 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped (see salsa cruda), or substitute 2 cups chopped, drained, canned Italian plum tomatoes
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ medium bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt

    2. Add the tomatoes, oregano, bay leaf, salt and a few grindings of black pepper, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and water, cover, and cook over moderate heat for 20 minutes.

    3. Then drop in the fish and coriander, stir once or twice, recover the pot, and cook for 10 minutes longer, or until the fish is firm and opaque and the potato is tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife.

    4. To serve, ladle the soup into a heated tureen or large serving bowl. Sprinkle parsley on top of it.
