      Fantastic seafood chowder!! followed the very clear instructions exactly except for the crabmeat. I used the shrimp, sea scallops cut in half, halibut and red snapper. The base for the chowder is one of the best we've had, the spices were just right, just enough bite and the sherry added a wonderful richness without having to use creams. Made it for a special lunch for a special friend and it turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing Sue L, this will be the seafood chowder to be made again and again.

      This is an amazing recipe! Due to a change of weekend plans, I had some shrimp and sea scallops I needed to use up. So, as I always do when such a need arises, I came here and searched for a recipe. This one sounded good but I was wrong - it was great!

      I did not have any lump crabmeat on hand but did have some pickerel filets. So, I microwaved them a couple of minutes to make removing the skin easier. Broke them up into bite size pieces and tossed them in with the scallops and shrimp. The pickerel worked just fine.

      As someone mentioned earlier, this recipe does need some salt so I added to taste.

      This is a keeper that I will make time and again.
