The only thing I might possibly change the next time I make this would be to cut down the amounts on the spices just a little. Overall, a very good soup which everyone enjoyed (including the children!). I served it with a spinach/mushroom salad and bread.

This is very good soup. After reading others' reviews I was a little nervous about the amount of spices. I went ahead and made the recipe as written anyway. I thought it was delicious as is. I did however add a dash of hot sauce to my bowl just for a little extra pow, but as is, I would definately make this again.

Very, very good. I prepared as directed with all dried herbs in the quantities stated. One could sub. any shellfish desired (put in at the proper time to ensure it is cooked but not overdone) and could add some firm fish also as long as the clams and clam juice remained. Do not omit the fennel seeds..it lends the subtle sweetness necessary to combat the acid in the tomatoes. I will definitely prepare again and again.

Very good soup. Lots of good seafood in it. Only thing I would change is cut back on the spices. Thanks for posting.

Excellent recipe. I served it as a leftover over rice. I found the spices to be just right. Didn't change a thing.

AWESOME!!!! I love this recipe. Soooooo easy to prepare and delicious. I have 5 children 3 boys and 2 girls my boys had 3rds. My husband had some again in the morning. Now, I don't know what fennel seeds are so I grounded black peppercorn, I also didn't want to use wine so I omitted that. Wonderful soup. Thank You, Thank You Thank you.
