I made this recipe for a party and used pacific cod as the filets. I added a dash of old bay seasoning and dill, otherwise kept everything the same, and everyone raved about it. It was the best fish chowder I've ever made or had, my husband, too...and that's coming from a couple of Rhode Islanders with commercial fishing relatives!
A little heavy on the cream, but otherwise delicious. I had whole fish, so I cut it in chuncks, poached it, (with a bay leaf, Old bay seasoing and a little lemon) and used the strained poaching liquid along with the clam juice. I also added a can of corn. My family loved it!
from a Maine Islander... excellent!
