  1. Step 1 Prepare the vegetable soup

    Slice the onions. Cook onions over medium-high heat in a pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Meanwhile, peel and chop the carrots and sweet potatoes. Add these to the onions then pour in the water. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Transfer cooked vegetables and about 2 cups soup liquid into a blender. Add the crème fraiche, cover and blend until smooth.

    Cut pollock into large pieces. Place fish into the marinade bowl. Core and chunk the bell peppers. Arrange the fish and peppers alternately on metal skewers.

  3. Step 3 Grill pollock skewers

    Place skewers on a medium-heat grill and cook, covered for about 8-10minutes, turning occasionally. Serve pollock skewers with sweet potato soup.
