"Hunger is the best spice."
Soup is the best cure for the winter blues and this spicy fish soup will really heat things up. If you don't like it spicy, leave out the chili and the soup is still great. Combine all that's good of soup with all that's wonderful about eating fish and you have the perfect meal. This soup is easy and quick to make. The potatoes thicken the broth and the fish flavor combines with the veggies for a great soup.
Fresh clams can be gritty; soak them in water with cornmeal to help purge any grit inside the shell. Make sure that you add some salt to the water (clams are, after all, saltwater animals). Use about 1/3 of a cup of salt in a gallon of cool water. You don't need much cornmeal – two tablespoons or so. The clams will feed on the cornmeal and expel the grit and such that are inside the shells.
