Spanish Inspired Mahi Mahi Soup

I classified this soup as Spanish because it has many of the ingredients typically used in Spanish cuisine (olives, bell pepper, hot pepper, garlic, onion and parsley).  But really this recipe is completely my creation, so Spanish or not, I hope you will enjoy as much as we did!
