Lovely seafood chowder recipe. I didn't use flour to thicken and wish I would have but loved all the herbs. Used shrimp, crab (imitation) and tilapia for the fish. Can hardly wait for real crab, it will be even better.

I love soup. I make it and eat it all the time and in the restaurants it's what I always get. This is the most wonderful soup! It is definitely one of the top 3 I have ever had. After a few days I tried it on pasta and it was wonderful. You could 1/2 the recipe, it makes a lot. I have some in the freezer and will see how it turns out. Thanks so much!

I too cut the recipe in half. I actually made it for my father, who can only eat pureed foods, which tend to be quite bland, and this recipe has a lot of flavor. I asked my husband to try it, and the next time I checked the pot, he had almost eaten half the pot (unpureed, of course). He obviously loved it, and so did I when I tried it. Thanks for the recipe.
