I used halibut - added small diced carrot and celery to add some colour - used 1 1/2cups whole milk and 1/2 cup cream with a teaspoon of dried dill, served small portions with oyster crackers as 1st course. Company loved it.

Added small chopped carrots and fresh thyme to this recipe. Also thickened this by adding 1/2C flour to a small can of evaporated milk at the end. Great Chowda!
