    Beautiful BC's Note:

    In British Columbia, Canada, the Ferries that travel the beautiful trip between the Mainland and Vancouver Island, are famous for their "Manhattan" styled Clam Chowder. In the small village by Horseshoe Bay terminal, one of the little bistro's has it's own kicked up version. This is my copycat version of their version! NOTE - this is on the spicy/hot side so if you aren't a fan of that, don't add the red pepper flakes. Serve up with a crusty white artisan bread and a crisp, dry white wine. May I recommend BC's Sonoma Ranch Pinot Grigio. UPDATE: Sept 3, 2012 - Upped the flavour factor on this tasty soup last night by adding in a small chopped zucchini, a small finely chopped fennel bulb and instead of using tomato paste I added 2 TBSP of chipotle adobe sauce. If you don't like the spice of peppers you could add some liquid smoke or smoked paprika instead. Because of the added ingredients I added a bit more clamato and a bit more wine.

      This was a really excellent thick clam chowder. I think the green chillies are the secret ingredient. The bacon (I used half) and (fire roasted) tomatoes made it really smoky. I left the red pepper flakes out so it would not be too spicy, and made my own clamato. I also added a bit more veggies and the juice of one lemon. Delicious, a definite new favorite!

      Very delicious. I've been craving Manhattan Clam Chowder for awhile and this was quite satisfying. I made some modifications to make it gluten-free, using rice flour, and because I couldn't find Clamato juice. I found a recipe for Clamato juice online and it was quite easy to do using readily available ingredients from my cupboard. I also added a bottle of clam juice and a bit more clams than the recipe called for to ramp up the flavor since I already had them in the pantry. Yummy. There wasn't a drop left over.

      This is very flavorful chowder that I made as directed but scaled it down to 2 servings and used red bell pepper in lieu of the green. I did enjoy this as it has lots of flavor, but did not care for the heat it has from the crushed red pepper and green chilis. Chef #754645 (on the other hand) loved it with the heat (he's a fire-eater when it comes to food). This is a very good clam chowder recipe similar to Manhattan style, but with a kick. Thanks for sharing.
