Totally awesome. I followed the recipe to a T, except for the chervil. I couldn't find any. I totally impressed my boyfriend, who's fisherman friend gave us the halibut. Thanks for an difficult to make tasting, classy soup that was really easy.

I had a nice soup making day today since it was just nasty outside. I made this recipe as stated except I used margarine, skim milk, and lean turkey bacon. I cut this down to make one big supper size portion for my mother using about a little more than 1/4 lbs fish. Since I really did not want to wait a long time for the potatoes to cook so I par cooked them in the mircowave. This is a wonderful fast and tasty soup recipe.
