Good soup! I think next time I will use cream or evaporated milk to make the broth creamier, and omit the wine and hot pepper flakes so I can taste more of the delicious lobster and fish. I used haddock as my fish. I will omit the bay leaf and thyme too. I think it would just be better without it as seafood is delicate and to me the spices over powered the fish and seafood.
