"LOVE this soup--and it's been added to my soup favorites. I did have to make a few changes: family does not like corn and leaving it out made the soup a bit thin, so I separately cooked a couple of potatoes (diced, boiled, and slightly mashed) before adding them to the soup; the addition of the potatoes made this more chowder-like. I added half of a carrot (grated, which provided another color to the soup); and because of trying to keep costs down, I added the flaked-version of imitation crab meat. The soup is even better the next day. Truly delicious!"

"This is sooooo delicious. Thanks for the recipe. I had to adjust this for my own way of eating but stayed true to the recipe as much as possible. I subbed arrowroot for regular flour, butter for the canola, canned coconut milk for the heavy cream (only because I didn't have any) and skipped the corn because I am grain free."

"This was really good. I didn't have any corn so I made it without, but it was really good even with out the corn. Will make this again. *** My second review **, I now used the corn in it was better yet with it, and since my first review I had made this soup over and over again."

"Most seafood soups have an overpowering taste of cream and seafood, but not this one it's perfect."

"I thought roasting the corn was a step that didn't produce much additional flavor. Next time I will make it quicker by adding corn cut from cob or even from a can. Would otherwise keep this recipe as is. Family loved this recipe and will definitely be made again and again."
