Boston Fish Chowder

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by pesce_gurl

This is from a Famous Brand Names cookbook that my mama gave me. I don't eat any meat, with the exception of seafood, so I skip the bacon and use imitation chicken broth or vegetable broth as the base. Enjoy!

I used this recipe and added lobster, crab, scallops, shrimp and flounder. Absolutely delicious! We had this for Christmas Eve and I'm glad I doubled the recipe. My family was still talking about the chowder the next day!
