Preparation: Thinly slice onion. Rinse and drain hominy. Rinse fish, pat dry, and cut into 3/4 inch cubes (discard any bones you discover while cutting fish). Slice lime into 6 wedges.
Cooking: Stir onion and oil in a 3-4 quart pan over medium-high heat until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
Add hominy, chicken broth, tomatoes and their juice, chilies and cumin. Cover pan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Add fish; simmer and stir gently until fish flakes when prodded with a fork, 2-4 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls. Squeeze juice of 1 lime wedge into each bowl of soup. Serve salsa or hot pepper sauce alongside to season to taste. Makes 6 servings.
Note: Snapper, Cod, Shrimp and Orange Roughy may be substituted.
