Guerilla Style Fish Dumpling Soup

I was in a rush and wanted to make a quick healthy meal, so I made some fish dumpling soup with whatever i had in the fridge, guerilla style! I only had 4 dumpling wrappers left, so I spooned the rest of the filling into the broth and it held together, kind of like the fish balls in hot pot.


For filling/fishballs

1 filet of tilapia (or whatever fish you have at the moment will do)

1/3 carton of silken tofu

2 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp ground ginger

Dumpling wrappers

For broth:

2 cups veggie/chicken broth

1 tsp hondashi (optional)

2 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

1 tbsp dark vinegar

White pepper


Bring all broth ingredients to a boil on high. Cut the tilapia into chunks and blend/food processor with rest of the filling ingredients until it’s a smooth paste. Fold into dumplings and spoon the rest into the bubbling broth. Cook for 10-15 minutes until everything is floating.
