  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add potato, celery and onion and stir continuously until potato softens (10-12 minutes). Add wine, chicken stock, herbs and fish stock, bring to the boil and cook until vegetables are tender (25-30 minutes).
  • 03
  • Coarsely chop 4 snapper fillets, add to soup with lemon juice and simmer until fish is cooked (5 minutes). Season to taste and blend with a hand-held blender until smooth (be careful, hot soup can splash).
  • 04
  • To serve, finely chop remaining 2 snapper fillets, add to soup and bring back to boil. Remove from heat and divide soup among bowls, scatter with parsley and dill, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and serve with warm crusty bread.
