Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min.


8 servings

We modified a recipe shared by Doris Berquist of Fort Mohave, Arizona to take advantage of leftover cooked fish. The seafood soup is wonderful served with warm homemade bread.


  • 4 strips bacon, diced
  • 3 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 cups cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed, crushed
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
