Top Review by groovyrooby

I was so intrigued by the ingredients and the preparation I just had to try this one. Also, I am a big fan of fish soups, so this was right up my alley. Though not quite as brothy as I usually like, the loads of peppers really mellowed out and made a great stock with the peppers and onions. My husband loved the big chunks of meaty tuna! I would like to try this again a few more times, maybe adding some jalapeno and lemon juice, maybe even some pineapple juice to come closer to the vietnamese fish soup I love so much!! Thanks for the great recipe. It makes a ton, too. We've made two meals of it so far, and I bet we'll get at least one more!
