Hi Alan Leonetti, we made this chowder and it was wonderful! It was nice and creamy and with just enough seafood(we used real crab and used some shrimp, as well.)We served it with a tomato, mixed greens and avocado salad, with a vinaigrette dressing and bread hot from the oven. Thank you for such a wonderful chowder and a quick recipe to boot, DiScharf :=)
