Something warm on those cold winter days! I've used this recipe to also make oyster stew. It turned out better than expected.

  • Stir flour into the vegetable mixture until the vegetables are evenly coated. Pour clam juice and water into the saucepan; whisk until smooth. Add potatoes, bay leaf, and thyme to the mixture. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Gently stir cod into the soup. Place a cover on the saucepan and cook until the cod is flaky, about 8 minutes.

  • Pour milk into the soup; stir. Simmer soup until hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Remove bay leaf to serve.

Totally excellent. I'd soo make this in a heart-beat again! It is on the thin side for us but the flavor was really good. I'll be replacing the milk with heavy cream the next go around. The recipe was very easy to follow easy with the instructions and I didn't feel it was at all time consuming. Totally Totally a keeper!

I found this recipe really tasty even tho I did have to do several substitutions because I decided to try this on a whim (Chicken broth for oyster juice... still works great). I added more seasonings too such as basil and tarragon and a dash of cayenne. Also used tilapia and cod. Served with a tortilla yum!

This recipe is awesome. Being originally from New England I know a good fish chowder when I taste it....and this is it. I have been looking for a chowder recipe that tasted authentic. This is it. The only changes I made were to use heavy cream instead of the milk and I added a can of cream style corn. Absolutely delicious. Thanks so much for sharing.

Really good! Didn't have clam juice so subbed with chicken boullion. Also used schucked frozen clams and the juice from them. Didn't have much celery so added a pinch of celery salt in place of regular salt. It's cooking now and smells amazing! Will probably whisk in a bit of cornstarch to thicken. So far the taste test is great!

This was a delicious chowder that everyone loved! We had some breaded cod fillets (about a pound) leftover from dinner that we decided to use for this recipe. I didn't have clam juice so I used 3 cans of chopped clams instead. I didn't have whole milk so I used heavy cream and some water and added about 1/3 cup flour to thicken the chowder. Also added about 5 strips of cooked bacon chopped up. Super delicious!! Thanks for a great recipe! We will definitely make this one again!

This was the first time I can remember that the whole family liked a meal with no complaints at all. I did make a couple of minor changes. Instead of cod I used fish I caught myself (rock bass and small mouth bass) and instead of clam juice I used fish stock I made by boiling the heads of the fish then removing them and topped it up with salt water. I added 2 carrots diced and instead of whole milk I used 2% lactose free milk.

Good basic soup. I also added carrots. I was a little worried it wouldn't be flavorful enough so I added ground white pepper at the end. Will make again

Just had fish chowder while visiting Nova Scotia and wanted to duplicate it. This recipe was wonderful and I will be making it again just as written.
