Delicious! I made this with King Fish, which I don't really care for, but have an abundance of. The other flavors made a hoe hum dinner, amazing! I drained the corn as well.

Maybe too much going on with the bacon, clams, fish. Did not like it.

Very good... will definitely make again. I used Tilapia for the fish instead of cod and did drain the corn.

I love fish chowder and this one is delicious. I did add a second can of clams because I love them and I don't drain it. The liquid only adds additional flavor. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I already had some cod so I used that.

This was delicious! My husband (not a big fish eater) was very skeptical. I kept reminding him that "we like to try new things, don't we?", but he wasn't convinced so I put him to work cutting the onions and grilling the fish. We cooked the bacon separately, using it as a garnish when plating. I cooked the potatoes separately, too, then added them with the milk to the pot and used my immersion blender to slightly puree the potatoes before adding the rest of the ingredients. I did drain and rinse the clams, only b/c my husband was voicing his worry about it being too "fishy" - but I think next time I won't drain them (I just won't let him see). We used haddock in this recipe b/c it was on sale. My husband proclaimed it delicious and, as he went back for a 2nd bowl, made me promise to make it again.
