"I added 1 can clams for more flavor. Also added a little garlic. Soup was wonderful. I'm happy it only makes soup for two. It is easily doubled if I need more."

"This is the first fish chowder I have ever made. I used tilapia instead of the fish it called for and I added a little bit of garlic salt. My family ate it up!"
