Found this recipe in a magazine & it has been a favorite of mine for a few years now. My kids can't get enough of it. I did substitute the veggie broth for chicken because I like the flavor better. I also double the recipe because I like leftovers.

Stir in broth, potato, lemon juice & old bay seasoning. Bring to boil & then reduce heat to simmer. Cover & cook 10-15 minutes or until potato is tender.
  • 4Stir in fish, cooked wild rice & bacon. Return to boiling & reduce heat to a simmer. Cover & cook 2 to 3 minutes or until fish is cooked through. Stir in cream, thyme, basil & parsley. (You can use dried here but remember to cut back on amount as it is stronger when dried). Heat soup but do not boil. And eat :)
