Reviews for Halibut Chowder
"This was good but not as flavorful as I would like (especially to justify this many calories!). I did add potatoes and used fresh carrots both of which I added just after the garlic and cooked for a few minutes before adding the soups in order to make sure they cooked through."
"Excellent tasting, made it twice! However, the second time I added the carrots much earlier otherwise they don't cook thoroughly. Just a suggestion for anyone making this."
