I made this recipe tonight for my family. They loved it! It was so easy and simple - and I loved that I had most of the ingredients on hand. I added fresh mushrooms and corn to my batch to make it a little heartier. Will definitely make it again.

This was so easy that I felt guilty! I used a can of crab and clams with the juices and made up the rest of the pound and a half with shrimp. I added some potatoes and corn too. Loved it.

I made this for soup night at church. There was another seafood chowder, but this one was a hit! I used tilapia, scallops, shrimp, and a can of crabmeat. I also added potatoes, which I cubed and cooked beforehand. The spices gave it a nice flavor without making it too spicy or hot. Great and easy recipe!

Wow, I made this with fresh shrimp, using 2/3 off the butter, and only one can of celery soup, I also added some diced potatoes I cooked for 5 min in the microwave. Fabulous, next time, and there will be a next time, I think I might try old bay, and cut back the cayenne by half, overall and excellent restaurant quality soup. Update: I made it with old bay, and I like the thyme/marjoram better, although I rarely use the cayenne. I am making this a least once a month now. mostly w/ shrimp.

A keeper. I used a frozen seafood mix. It came out delicious although I used only have of the butter suggested, substituted potato cream with celery cream, and used corn starch instead of flour (I'm on high protein, low carb diet). It's a simple and very versatile recipe. Thanks for posting it.

This was extremely easy to put together and very, very tasty! Next time I may add a small can of diced potatoes in addition to the potato soup. YUM!

Great soup! The only changes I would make next time would be to only use 1 can of cream soup (I thought it was a bit too thick) and to use 1 can of crab and 1 can of shrimp with juices, as it could use the extra flavour. I also added some cracked pepper. Thanks for the recipe!

My whole family, even the 5 year old, loves this. I have to make it every couple weeks. We like it with cod, bay scallops, and shrimp.

I lost my seafood chowder recipe so I seached here for a new one. So many had tomatoes in the recipe, which I didn't want. This was easy and so tasty. The entire family liked it. Am putting the recipe in a safe place as to not lose this one!

Delish and verrryyy easy to make. Next time, I'll cut back on the cayenne...it was too much for all of us! But thanks for the great and simple chowder!
