Bahamian Fish Soup

I had this recipe in an authentic local restaurant in Grand Bahama with Johny Bread and its the best breakfast i ever had in my life. Who would think of soup?

4 fair sized grouper steaks
2 large onions diced
4 strips chopped bacon
6 diced potatoes
2 celery sticks chopped
1 or 2 bird peppers
1 lime cut in half
1 qt good clear fish stock

Cooking instructions: You will need a relatively large cooking pot. Combine both onions and bacon in the pot. Cook until onions soften, stirring regularly. Remove from heat. In a medium size pot, bring potatoes to a boil, cooking only 1/2 way, remove from heat, strain. In the large pot, add stock to onions and bacon until pot is about 1/2 full. Combine and add the following ingredients. Potatoes, salt, celery, bird peppers, and squeeze 1/2 lime into mixture. Bring to boil for about 10 minuets. Add grouper fillet, boiling for 5-8 minuets before removing from heat.
Total cooking time: 35 mins Serves: 4
