    Lorac's Note:

    I originally served this to our gourmet group as a first course. Fortunately, I had made extra, because everyone wanted seconds in spite of knowing there was 3 more course yet to come. I was very pleased they liked the soup but disappointed because my husband and I were looking forward to leftovers for the next day!

      It was my turn to host the monthly girlfriend lunch get-together. The bisque was unbelieveably delicious. I used clam juice because I am just too lazy to fool with making fish stock. I followed your very clear directions to the letter. I doubled the recipe and am very glad because my husband and I took the leftovers to work for lunch. Wonderful flavors and texture. Thanks so much.

      this was good, I used canned fish stock that I purchase from a Asian speciality store, I increaased the garlic way up and added in 2 teaspoons crushed red chili flakes, was hoping for more of an intense flavor I felt that there was something missing, however we still enjoyed it, thanks for sharing Lorac!
