This chowder requires a lot of ingredients and chopping but is relatively quick. If I made it again I wouldn't use the light cream. Halibut takes delicious in the broth. Read More

This chowder is a full meal deal with flavor to spare. Feel free to inovate with seafoods that are in season or more reasonable. If you do look for a variety of textures and flavor. Read More

My husband loved this chowder! I'm not a fish person and I used cod so it was kind of fishy tasting but I could tell that the base was good and that if I use flounder or haddock next time which are milder this will be outstanding for me. My husband said I could serve this to company! I think I'll try the potatoes next time and leave out the cream because I like a tomato type base better than creamy. I just made this today and I'm going to try again this weekend with a few modifications because I think I'll really like this with a milder fish! Thanks Corwynn! I'm always looking for something new and good! Read More

I made some minor changes and loved this! I used Haddock added cubed red potatoes corn and 3 cloves chopped garlic. I also used a can of diced tomatoes (subbed for the whole tom.) and used a bit more salt and rosemary. We had friends over and they couldn't get enough. Thanks for a great one! Read More

Outstanding! I have been making this for years and everyone that has ever tried it loved it. A great first course if you are doing a nice dinner party. No matter how you adjust the recipe (fish veggie quantity etc) it always comes out tasting like an expensive restaurant dish. Read More

I made this last weekend and it was pretty good. I used diced tomatoes vs whole peeled and I also added 3 medium sized white potatoes cut into small cubes. For the fish I used halibut and I didn't add into the pot until after 6-7 hours of cooking. No need to cook the fish the entire time. I had planned on adding some peas and forgot - will add next time. And I ended up using 1/4C of skim milk vs the cream. The taste was ok so I would advise adding pepper and salt to taste. Once I did that the taste was awesome. Will make this again. Read More

excellent - not a fan of fish but will make this time and again as this chowder carries the flavor of the fish (used fresh water fish) but does not overwhelm and retains the concept of a chowder not fish with a sauce. served for friends and was rewarded with raves. Read More
