I really wanted to like this. It did make a lot of soup but unfortunately it was a waste of fish because I did not like it. I thought these flavors would be good but it seemed to accentuate the taste of the fish and I used fresh, good fish.

I've been making lots of soups this winter and I really enjoyed this soup! Followed the recipe exactly. I wasn't sure it'd be spicy enough without additional seasoning but it had a nice kick to it. It definitely makes more than 4 servings but that's the beauty of soup, stick a few servings in the freezer for days you really don't have time to cook! I will make this again maybe with tofu.

I was looking for a good fish stew and this has promise though I changed some things around: No one in my family likes celery so I took this out, and added corn for a more southwestern taste. I spiced it up with some cumin and topped it with avocado and some lime juice. Is now a favorite of my family!

This soup has some good beginnings, but it definitely needs spicing up! I added cumin, ground chilli, oregano and salt and it was soooo much better.

This was a really tasty soup. I did alter it by omitting the wine and replacing it with water. I also omitted the potato. I didn't have any fish so I doubled the shrimp. I loved the base flavor of the soup, I can see it tasting good with cooked chicken as well. Other things could also be added like cooked rice, beans, corn, fresh avocado. I will definitely make this again!
