Haddock is one of my favorite fish and this is my favorite chowder. This dish is wonderful served with a crusty white bread and sweet butter. If you don't drink, the chowder tastes great without the sherry...also. Please feel free to add additional spices/herbs or additional salt and pepper, if desired.

This is very good and held up surprisingly well as leftovers. For a creamier texture, I pureed the vegetables a bit before adding the shredded fish.

We all agree this one is a new favorite. We love haddock and with the weather cold here, a chowder is always well received, but this one is REALLY good! We had it with some oyster crackers and a big dill pickle on the side!

Yummy chowder, Baby Kato!! I have to admit I wasn't in the mood for chowder tonight and was just trying to use up some haddock that I had on hand, until I tried this recipe. I was very, very pleasantly surprised. I ended up LOVING this chowder! The flavor of this chowder is fantastic and the prep is very easy. Modifications included using 2 shallots, 4 cloves of garlic (added when sauteeing the onions and shallots), heavy whipping cream (that's what I had on hand), triple the salt (based on other reviewers' comments), one extra sprig of thyme, dry sherry, and I added a little bit of shrimp since I only had one pound of haddock on hand. I am looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I will DEFINITELY make this chowder again. Thanks for a great meal. Made for ZWT4.
