North African Fish Soup

This is a tasty and very easy soup to make. It's especially nice on chilly evenings when a good soup is so nice and comforting. Sometimes I use the potatoes and sometimes not. Personally I really like a lot of liquid to dip good crusty bread into to soak it up. It tastes so good.
