OMG! I am thrilled to be able to review this first but I cannot believe no one has tried this yet. This recipe is AMAZING and surprisingly easy. The tomato soup/base is so incredibly flavorful, my husband asked me to make a big batch and freeze it to eat as soup alone. So good! I used thick cut bacon and fresh tomatoes from my garden. I did not have any fresh thyme so I used dried and it was still delicious. If you really want to WOW someone, try this - I promise it's not difficult at all and absolutely worth the effort. Really showcases the amazing Chilean Sea Bass too! GO - buy the stuff you need and make this - GO GO GO! Thanks so much for posting this! :)
