In a large stockpot, combine the tomatoes, water (61/2 cups is about 2 tomato-cans worth), carrots and celery and bring to a simmer. In a separate pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the cabbage and onion and cook until browned and soft. Don't rush this step as it provides a lot of flavor to the soup--20 minutes, stirring frequently, is about right. SALT and PEPPER the cabbage and onions while cooking. When the carrots are almost cooked, drop the whole fish filets into the soup. As the fish cooks, break up the pieces that aren't coming apart. When the fish is broken and mixed through, add the cabbage and onions into the simmering soup. Add the SUNNY SPAIN. Taste and add any more salt and pepper, your favorite heat (CRUSHED RED PEPPER FLAKES or hot sauce or BOTH) and cream if you like and serve with a nice dark piece of bread with real butter. Enjoy!
