“What’s Old Bay?” you ask. Try this: celery seed, black pepper, bay leaf, cardamom, mustard seed, cloves, paprika, and mace.
Didn’t have cod, so I added shrimp during the last 5 minutes of cooking. (Don’t overcook shrimp, otherwise they get rubbery).Also didn’t have clam juice, so I used extra chicken stock. Instead of evaporated milk, I used 2%. As others mentioned, I added corn, extra mushrooms, and crumbled bacon on top.
This chowder is AMAZING! I accidently overcooked the potatos, so I would be sure to follow cook time to a "T". Still turned out great. The only thing I changed was mincing the celery and mushrooms, and I only added one can of evaporated milk. Great combo with the fish especially for those who don't like chewing on rubbery clams. I am from the Pacific Northwest and we have a lot of famous chowder houses up here. A trick I learned when searving chowder is to put a bit of butter and a sprinkle of pepper on top. (Thought I would pass it on) This chowder is already very rich and creamy so I am eating it just the way it is. I saw a lot of comments stating this is a bland chowder and I did not find it so. I put in a lot of pepper cause that is the way I like chowder, so maybe give that a try. We had garlic sticks with ours and it made a great meal!
This really was easy and extremely adaptable. I used catfish, but any white fish would work well - even a mixture of fish. I increased the Old Bay Seasoning to 1 tsp +, and added the entire bottle of clam juice. I also added 1 Tbls more than called for of flour, to make it a little thicker. Next time I'll add the crumbled bacon into the soup, rather than use as a topping. Top with parsley. KEEPER!
This was soooo good! My husband's first response was, "Darn, that's good! Why haven't you made this before??" I did make a few changes though... but I think the recipe as written would be just as yummy. I used 1lb red snapper, 1lb cooked baby shrimp and some chopped clams. I had lots of clam juice, so I used 4 cups clam juice to 1 cup chicken broth. I also used half and half rather than evaporated milk and found that 16oz was enough. Used Lawry's great garlic salt with parsley and lots more Old Bay's to taste. I can't recommend this recipe either way highly enough.. we will have it again and again and again!
THIS CHOWDER IS SPECTACULAR!! I made a few changes based on previous reviews and preference. I used an 8 oz container of sliced mushrooms. It looks like a lot but they reduce in size after cooking. I used 1 lb of cod 1/2 lb of bay scallops 1 lb of shrimp and 2 cans of minced clams. Instead of buying a separate bottle of clam juice I saved the juice from the canned clams and mixed it with the flour. Two cans will give you one cup of juice. The variety of seafood added great flavor! I also used a full tablespoon of the Old Bay seasoning which I thought was perfect! I also took other reviewers suggestions and used one can of creamed corn and used 1 cup of half & half in place of the evaporated milk. My family absolutely loved it! Thanks for a great recipe.
I made this recipe with catfish and it turned out wonderful, I only used one can of the milk, and about 1/2 cup extra chicken stock. I also included bacon, and cooked the onions and celery in the drippings. I think adding scallops would have really made the recipe better, I will add them next time, Thanks for a great winter recipe!
Outstanding recipe. Instead of the cod, I had leftover grilled striped bass that I used, which made it a bit faster and also gave a hint of smokiness. I also put in some finely sliced scallions - added the white part before I took it off the heat and added the green part with the evaporated milk. Really great for a quick summer dinner. Would definitely make again.
Wow... after all the rave reviews I thought this chowder was boring and bland. What was everyone raving about? I doctored it up with some worcestershire sauce a shot of sherry a little thyme marjoram a bay leaf and a lot more Old Bay and then it was pretty good.
