This made a fabulous dinner. The broth is superb and don't be swayed by the anchovies - they definitely added 'oomph' to the whole dish and are totally necessary. I also provided some freshly-grated Parmesan at the table to sprinkle overtop, something I like with fish soups, and plain bruschetta on the side (just rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil). Thanks.
