Chef John and his educational, inspirational videos, have given me so much pleasure to watch and reason to create delicious everything! I was given two pounds of crappie filets so while looking through stew, soup, and chowder recipes, I saw and watched his black lentil soup video. I wonder what Chef John would say about using this, his lentil soup recipe, as a base. Since he's not here to try my creation, I (as always) am relying on the opinion of my family. I love my version and so do they. I had small whole green lentils and they stood up to simmering for 45 minutes. Also, I did add half of a chopped jalapeño pepper and 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper to the onion, carrot, and celery. Another ingredient that appealed to me from a Bermuda fish chowder, 3 tablespoons of tomato paste, I stirred into the chicken broth. The small crappie filets (after sprinkling them with Old Bay seasoning) were added during the final 10 minutes of simmering. What do you think Chef?
