Great chowder. I added 1 can clams and Old Bay seasoning. I also roughly grated 1/2 a carrot and added for some color.
I made half the recipe for my husband and me, and we ate every last drop for supper--oink. I substituted half of the water with clam juice, and I used a combination of milk and half & half because that was what I had. Very good!
finally a recipe for fish chowder the way i grew up on,no thickening it like wallpaper paste,just we only used canned milk because it gave it a better taste.only thing differant is we had common crackers to float on top of our chowder[too expensive now adays]
Outstanding made exactly as directed
This is a family favorite! It goes together fast and easy and I can easily keep the ingredients on hand for a quick meal. I have made this for guests and always get rave reviews. I use chicken broth instead of water and I use a bit less (maybe 2 - 3 cups) because we like a chowder with less broth. I have also used shrimp and langostino with great results.
