I enjoy chowders and found this one very easy to make. I have my own 'recipe' for chicken stock and used that instead. The taste was still wonderful - creamy with tender seafood. As they say in the McDonald's ads in Australia "Mmmmm...". I thoroughly recommend anyone who like seafood to try this recipe.
Superb hearty and warming seafood chowder! Doubled recipe, using 2 lbs pollock fillets, a lb of scallops, and substituted canned chicken broth and clam juice for stock (doubled all other ingredients). Also added two tablespoons dried parsley. Delicious results--thanks!
This is avery good chowder recipe. I didn't make my own stock, instead I used canned (1 can vegetable broth with onions, 1 can low-sodium chicken, and 1 can chicken with garlic and herbs). I also used 1 can of fat-free milk along with 1 can of 2% too help lower the fat. Very tasty and easy to do.
