Someone I know loved this soup, so I went into a seafood restaurant and asked for a "loose" recipe and this is what I jimmy-rigged after trials... sooo good you will smack anyone who makes this and falls short even in a restaurant!!!

Yum, yum, yum! Back off on the Tabasco a bit if you don't like your heat at full-throttle, but we simply loved this recipe as-is.

Note: Lobster and shrimp both work great! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
