Czech Fish Soup (Rybí Polévka)

3 bacon slices, diced
1 1/2 lb assorted fresh fish fillets, diced
1 tbsp paprika
6 cups water
3 tomatoes, chopped
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed 
Salt and pepper

For the dumplings
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
3 tbsp  water
pinch of salt
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Fry the diced bacon in a dutch oven  until crisp, then add the pieces of fish. Fry for 1 minute on one side, then flip them over and let the other side cook for about a minute. Add paprika, water and potatoes, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes to the pan. Cook for 10 min, stirring occasionally. Season to taste.
To make the dumplings mix all the ingredients in a small bowl until soft dough forms. Drop spoonfuls of dough into the soup and cook for 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley.
