EXCELLENT Chowder!! I have made this twice so far. I did cut the liquid back by about half maybe a little less. Served at a dinner party for 8 people as a first course & everyone raved. Read More

Wow- I was VERY disappointed with this recipe. First of all since the vegetables (including the potatoes) were "minced" it really lacked the chunky vegetables usually associated with a chowder. Secondly there was very little flavor even though I added additional clam juice cayenne pepper and salt & pepper. The broth also seemed to seperate making a very odd consistency. My husband who found & was looking forward to the recipe ordered a pizza. Read More

This is an excellent recipe. Also is an excellent base for fish chowder. Add your own favorite seafoods for variation. Read More

Be prepared to freeze this soup or eat it for a few days. My 13 month old loves it with crackers crumbled in it(seafood picked out of course). We're a family of three; mommy daddy and baby. Just to give you idea of how much it will feed...for a few days!! Very tasty perfect for cold weather. Read More

This is an outstanding chowder better than most restaurants can dream up for sure! The Sherry adds a touch of class and it's a breeze to cook up on short notice. I used whole cream and skim milk as that's what I had on hand and in the future I intend to add some haddock or cod to add a bit more seafood to the mix. This is a can't miss recipe for those who love a good rich seafood chowder! Read More

I did not find this recipe very good. I had to add chicken boullion to give it some taste. Way too much liquid also. I wont make this again. Read More

Often times I surf the web looking for ingredients for newly created recipes and of course check out all recipes (that’s a given for me).I saw your recipe online and decided to adopt from it. I wanted to make a medley of seafood items in a dish very much like yours. I love your ingredients and from that I made a few changes and here’s what I did.Instead of using water I exchanged that for chicken broth and whole milk instead of half-and-half.I upped the butter to one cup. In my sauté I chopped celery, green onions and white onions. I added. Oyster sauce, and plenty of obey seasoning. I omitted the tomatoes. Of course the corn and potatoes.I included cod fish, salmon, shrimp, scallops, oysters, clams, and squid I wanted but I didn’t have any on hand. In conclusion my dish was scrumptious. Thank you for helping me through your recipe in creating a dish of seafood medley. Kevin, Washington DC Read More

I changed the recipe by adding Lobster, Crab, & Clams to the Scallops and Shrimp. I also added Old Bay Seasoning and tripled the Sherry (half w/onions and half with the shellfish) to make an absolutely delicious dish! Add some good Sourdough Bread for the perfect main course! Read More
