Recipe by Outta Here

An Asian flavored light seafood soup. Makes 8 first course servings, or 4 main course. If you like the flavor of fish sauce, substitute that for the soy sauce.

Loved this recipe. Added cubed tuna steak, sliced water chestnuts, a few pieces of alaria (seaweed), an eight ounce bottle of clam juice, and a few splashes of fish sauce (and no soy sauce). It was really delicious. A great "base" recipe I've returned to a few times since.
