I've been on a low carb diet, so was very excited to find this soup recipe. I made it the first time exactly to recipe and found it to be okay, but bland. I added some hot sauce and bouillon granules and liked it much better. This time I made it with chicken broth, 3 large cloves of garlic, and simmered it for 20 minutes before adding the fish. At this time I also added about 1/2 T of Louisiana hot sauce. I'm on my second bowl and loving every drop. This is my favorite low-carb recipe so far. Thanks, Ginny Sue!
