Creole Fish Chowder

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by echo echo

A nice hearty hot soup, great for lunch on a chilly day. Unlike a lot of fish chowder recipes, it contains no potatoes, so it's a good choice if you're trying to go light on starchy carbohydrates. Use more chili powder if you like. May be served with crackers.

This soup is delicious. For whatever reason, I find it difficult to find tomato-based fish chowders that I like - this one is terrific, AND easy. I followed the recipe exactly except I left the sugar out. Thanks for this!
