Spiced Haddock & Coconut Soup

This is another of my store cupboard recipes. I always have some smoked haddock in the freezer and the other items I will have as a matter of course.

I only had to go buy the parsley, but in the summer I have heaps of it in my garden.

I made this a few weeks ago when a friend came to visit. She liked it and asked for the recipe. Being a total airhead I promised it to her and promptly forgot to send it.

Today is her birthday, I hope I have saved a little face.

Happy Birthday Katy, love you lots my lovely friend ๐Ÿ˜€

I suggest you cook some rice noodles to have in the bottom of the bowl but just as it is, is divine! ๐Ÿ™‚
