"Delicious! I'm not a big fan of seafood, but will cook the fish that hubby and I love to catch. I used bluegills, embellished with a little garlic salt, chopped red pepper, celery and carrots. Most of the time I look for recipes to hide the fish flavor, but this was outstanding. I will definitely be making this again."

"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!"
