Being more of a Manhattan type Chowder guy I was looking for a "red" recipe and found a very good one here! I've made this twice now with some minor changes, mostly with different types of seafood including Salmon and Scallops. I think just about any type of seafood would work just fine so I recommend adding what you like. I added a tablespoon of Worcestshire and hot sauce for an added kick. This is definitely a keeper!

This is a MUST keep recipe! I tripled this for a beach party we went to, I had fresh blackfish, added a can of whole baby clams and a bag of frozen mixed seafood that was mussels, shrimp, and squid, both tentacles and rings I omited the imitation crab due to personal preference. I heated it up with chopped jalepenos added in with the celery and onion along with some cayenne. I also subbed turnip for the potato which lots of people mentioned they loved in there. The broth was amazing and clean tasting for the lack of a bunch of fat and salt , had grilled ciabatta bread for dipping. Great soup!

OMG this was a wonderful template for me to create something DEICIOUS! Some of the ingredients I didn't have on hand. I had regular hickory bacon, used diced tomatoes with green chilies, added 1 c ketchup, 1/2 c white wine, increased the water to 6c (I love soup), and used 1.5 lbs seasfood variety. I also added 3 packets of splenda. It was awesome. I also addred 6 chicken boullion (no chick broth onhand)mexican spices, cajun blend seasoning, oregano, and garlic..all to taste.

This served as a good template for me to make seafood chowder. I didn't use any clam nectar, but used a little extra chicken broth and tomato juice. Used a 1 lb package of mixed seafood from Walmart (shrimp, mussels, squid, fish, and crab). VERY GOOD!

Great recipe. I would have liked more spices though, esp. some red pepper to give it a little kick.

Excellent recipe- I did make a couple of changes to suit personal taste-I did not thicken it, used a 142g tin of clam nectar (size not specified in the recipe) and a 340g bag of frozen Seafood consisting of Octopus rings, Cuttlefish,Shrimp. squid, mussels and clams. Followed all the very clear steps and at the end added 1 jalapeno pepper chopped. It sounds as if I made a lot of changes but not really when you look at it- I did omit the bacon to cut back on fat & calories. Thanks Pam for a keeper seafood recipe — posted Oct 5, 2004

I made this soup for a work pot luck. I had never made soup before and wasn't prepared for the onslaught of coworkers asking me for the recipe. Thanks
