I found this lacking significant taste; it seemed to be missing something. I added 2 bouillon cubes after it was done but it still was bland. Cooked plain ramen noodles and added which was more hearty. May need to add red pepper flakes if I make again?? Overall, I enjoyed the cilantro ginger flavor with the salmon.

Used halibut in place of swordfish and was really pleased with the way it came out. Frozen cauliflower also worked wonderfully. I topped it with cilantro and avocado, for a delicious and flavorful soup.

Delicious soup! Mine was not as pretty as the picture but it tasted AMAZING! The salmon was not tough, and the soup had excellent flavors.
