Summery Fish Soup

We need to eat Omega 3 oils in their natural form if possible.  Fish and tomatoes compliment each other very well. especially when tomatoes are in season.  This fish soup feels really summery with the fresh tomatoes. You could always give it some extra depth of flavour by adding some bacon too.
