Sous vide cod with prawns in soupe de poissons

From Cookipedia

I discovered a 1 litre jar of Soupe de Poissons in the back of the cupboard, a souvenir from our last holiday in Brittany and wondered what I could do with so much lovely fish soup. In the end I divided it into three 330 ml portions, which I shrunk wrapped and froze.

This is what I made with one of the portions. It was excellent.

I've used basa instead of cod because I feel it is superior in taste and texture, as well as being sustainable.

I used the smallest prawns I could find as large prawns tend to be a bit chewy when cooked sous vide.
