    First let me say that 4 servings became 2 tonight. The tomatoes really cooked away into the soup so I just picked out the skins at serving time. The only thing I would change would be to use fish stock (if available) in place of the chicken. This is a lovely light and low fat soup that I'm sure I'll make again. I didn't have sea bass so I used Mahi Mahi along with the shrimp.

    Excellent. I did it with scallops and white fish (Goldbutsfilet, don't know the English name) but I'd recommend adding the tomatoes only 8 minutes before the end of cooking. My other half and I finished four servings between us. ;D

    Very, very good. I used leftover grilled red snapper and one small package of dried shrimp (added with the veggies). Left out carrots and added a can of navy beans drained. My family loved it!

    Great recipe. I made it just as listed and it was fantastic. Adding the shrimp was a nice touch. I plan to keep this recipe adn will try it with all kinds of fish. Thanks!
