Super Healthy Noodle Soup in Fish Broth

Super Healthy Noodle Soup in Fish Broth
This noodle soup is super healthy.  It is very flavorful and delicious.  An added benefit is that when you buy fresh fishes from the market and filet it, you can use the fish bones to make the broth.  No need to toss it out.  This broth is not fishy at all.  It is very light.  It just tastes good.  It has a good source of omega3 fatty acids and is a healthy enjoyable meal for the whole family.

My own original recipe.
