i was hesitant to put mayo on my soup (even garlic aioli) but OMG it was over the top and very easy to make. Good energy dinner! my one year old wouldnt touch it, tho, gave it a big rasberry

I dislike fish, and I disklike soup. I made this for my boyfriend who was sick at the time, and his doctor said he should eat plenty of fish. I loved it! I used alaskan cod with fresh oregano but no thyme. I even sent this to my mother to try! Great for those cold nights. =)
