This is a 5 start for taste! I made a much lightened version of this chowder as the amount of calories in one serving is my entire days allotment (1200). I omitted the salt pork and cooked the veggies in a small bit of water that was almost gone when it came time to add the milks. I used skim milk and fat free evap milk and 1 very small white potato (about 1/4 cup diced). It was the clam broth that made this so good and as catfish isn't available here I used a small piece of cod. Aside from removing the fat I used all the veggies ask for and seasoning so I do feel that I kept to the heart and spirit of this soup. After saying all of that, I truly loved it - I never thought of adding okra to seafood before. Thank you for sharing an excellent and adaptable recipe.
