Lettuce & Tomato Soup With Fish Balls

One Saturday when we had dinner at in law's place, their domestic helper cook this soup. I found that it's quite tasty. I also found out from her that this soup was in fact taught by father-in-law. Not bad wor, father-in-law also can come out with his own recipe, hehe...and he cooks quite frequent too after his retirement. Sometimes, he cooks fried noodle, fried koay teow, fish porridge, and several types of simple desserts.

Here's the improvised version of father-in-law's recipe. I would like to dedicate this post to him, wishing him "Happy Father's Day!". He would be happy if he happens to drop by my blog. Haha...But sadly, he doesn't know hubby & I owned this blog.

Lettuce & Tomato Soup With Fish Balls
Serves 2


1 liter chicken stock (cooked with 1 chicken bone for at least 1 hour)
12 lettuce leaves
3 tomatoes, each one sliced onto 4 portions, seeded
6 large fish balls, halved
2 tbsp of garlic oil
light soy sauce to taste


1. Bring chicken soup to boil in a pot. Pour in garlic oil.

2. Add in tomato slices, stir from time to time until tomato slices are thoroughly cooked.

3. Cook the fish balls in the soup.

4. Add light soy sauce to taste. Just before serving, stir in lettuce leaves.

Thanks for the recipe, this sounds simple and nice. Just that we need to get fish balls from Chinese supermarkets.

I cook something similar last week! It was fish soup though. Well, you can imagine most of the ingredients are similar, right? ;p

Sugar Bean, yes. You now in UK?

Dora, yes, it is something light.

Simple Girl, we don't take rice, we ate it with other stir fried veggies and tofu. :)

New kid, yes, you are right! :)

Duckie, this is actually quite free style. Quite a number of ingredients can mix well.

Tigerfish, fish soup? Oh I love fish soup.

I like those die-hards who will do the stock the traditional way. So easy to pop a chicken cube in.

Food Paradise, I never add enoki mushroom to soup other than miso soup. I learn new thing from you. :P
