    PennyG's Note:

    The Zwicker Inn was a very popular Inn on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. This recipe is one of the richest, most delicious seafood chowders I have ever tasted. Not your usual seafood chowder! This is seafood chowder for company! Can be doubled. Cooking time is an estimate, dicing and parboiling the potatoes is the hardest part of this recipe.

      This is a delicious chowder and it lends itself to a variety of seafood combinations. I used tilapia, jumbo shrimp, calamari and scallops. This would have been 5 stars but I think the instructions were poorly written and could be streamlined. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.

      Some years back Zwicker Inn was our favorite restaurant. This chowder is a fine example of the quality of their food then......highly recommend. I think this restaurant is now under new ownership.
