    jneen's Note:

    This is the best New England fish chowder ever. It is my mom's recipe. She is the best cook. It is simple and filling. Whenever we came home from school and knew this was cooking it was a joyful day. Hope you like it.

      This is very much like my family's recipe, except we use salt pork cut into lardons instead of the bacon. I like to add a can of peas, or sometimes a can of cream corn as well.

      The soup was good but lacking in flavour - our fish was pike which was what we had on hand.

      I am a born and bred northern New Englander and it is a pleasure to see a simple traditional Fish Chowder recipe shared that is made in the old Yankee manner without a lot of spices, etc. added. I, my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother made/make Fish Chowder exactly as jneen has shared here. If you want a true but simple and tasty New England flavor try this recipe.
