  1. Cook bacon in a soup pot over medium heat until crisp and brown, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in the pot. Cook and stir onion and red bell pepper until softened, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in garlic and seafood seasoning and cook and stir 2 more minutes.
  2. Pour in chicken broth and stir in potatoes and corn; add water if needed to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low; simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in milk and butter until butter has melted; mix in reserved bacon. Bring the soup just to the boiling point and stir in cod and parsley; cook, stirring occasionally, until fish flakes easily, 5 to 8 minutes.

Made it with canned corn and regular white potatoes, and I also added a little heavy cream. Turned out great. Had it for lunch with some nice crusty Italian bread - perfect for a chilly Fall day...

My DH and our friends gave it an A+. I didn't use fresh corn on the cob, but used 1/2 bag of "birds-eye"frozen petite white corn, and I had to improvise on the Old Bay's Seasoning. I pretty much...

Loved it! But did also thinly slice and sauté a half of a large fennel bulb along with the onion to round it out. The Old Bay really gives it just the right amount of kick. It has become a fam...

Very delicious recipe! Can be made with any whitefish.

Although the flavor was terrific, we like our chowder a bit thicker, so I will probably make a roux next time. I did not have any white potatoes, so I used sweet potatoes and it turned out great...

Good Cape Cod style recipe. Will make whenever I am hankering for the ocean.

This is my first attempt at a fish chowder and I'm very pleased. I didn't have any cod so I used a combo of salmon and scallops. I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried parsley and added i...
