This is so delicious! Great recipe, just wish there was a little less liquid in the chowder.

If you use seafood broth instead of water and kick it up with some Old Bay Seasoning, you now have maxed out this recipe!

this is as i remember new england chowders, as i was growing up in the coastal new england it was a welcome feeling to smell the aroma of fish chowder on top of the stove and the smell of homemade common crackers in the oven.

It's cold outside and this is wonderful on a day like this. I did add 1 can clams with liquid and a little Old Bay seasoning. Delicious

My family, 6yr old & 2yr old included, loved this. Used fish stock in place of water & used a mix of fat free half & half, whole & skim milk for the 3 cups milk. It was great.

The chowder was ok, a little milky, next time I would put only two cups of milk and one or one and a half cans of evaporated milk.This perticular chowder is very good for people who are watching there sodium.I would make it again with the changes.

Very good fish chowder and very easy to make. I live in New England, I know. Wonderful to have on these cold days. I did not change the recipe, I simply added some Old Bay seasoning.
