Recipe from Quick Dishes: Fish soup with mushrooms

Preparation time: 25 minutes.
Serves 1-2.

140 g fresh haddock fillets (= one small fillet)
1/2 can mushroom soup (I am assuming they mean Campbell's or at least the same size of can)
100 ml water
1/2 can tomatoes (I assume this means a standard can)
100 g arctic shrimp, unshelled
White pepper
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 bunch fresh dill
1 cube fish stock, optional

Put the soup in a saucepan with water and tomatoes and heat to the boiling point. If you want a more flavourful soup, add the stock cube. Cut the fish into bite-size pieces and add to the soup and cook for 5 minutes. Shell the shrimps. Adjust taste with white pepper and lemon pepper. Add the shrimps and finely chopped dill and simmer gently for a few minutes more. Be careful not to boil the soup at this point, as the shrimps will become tough if you do (they need gentle poaching). Serve immediately.
