I want to make some sprats + potatoes + some cheap vegetables like cabbage soup. What can I add to it to make it taste better? Some types of spices or some other cheap type of vegetables maybe? As long as it's cheap enough and makes it taste good, I'm fine with it.
Mainly the thing that I'm having a problem with is the fish taste, seeing as sprats taste kind of like herring, and boiled herring doesn't taste very good.
Pickled herring tastes great, so does salmon and other fish. Especially smoked. But not boiled sprats.
Note that I'm not looking for options like baking or frying the fish, I'm looking for a solution to the current problem, to add something, not to change something in this "recipe."
