Cooking tips:

You can use also chayote and green papaya as vegetables. Just cook them in the soup first before adding the fish because they take longer to cook.

Instead of whole fish, it’s also good to use fish fillets. Just keep in mind that they are quite delicate and cook much faster, so you should cook the soup first before adding the fish.
