Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large soup pot. Add onion, carrots and celery, plus a pinch of salt and pepper, and saute until tender, about 7-9 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add garlic and thyme to the pan along with scotch bonnet pepper if you want it to be spicy. (Leave out the pepper to keep mild.) Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add potatoes to the pan, along with chicken broth, and stir well.
Bring to a boil then stir in shrimp and fish along with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Reduce to low and simmer 30 minutes. Serve with minced cilantro, onion and lime juice.
