    This was good on a cold day and made excellent use of some fish we'd smoked however it lacked "something". Some tabasco at the table lifted it a bit and I think chicken stock instead of salt and water would improve it too. I like lots of veg in my chowders, so would use carrot, capsicum, corn or peas (or any combo of whatever I had of these on hand) to add to it. I could have eaten the entire cheese sauce on its own-it was delicious.

    excellent recipe. I poached the fish in the milk, which I used for the sauce. I didnt add the tomatoes, but will try that next time. Everyone was very impressed!!! thanks auntie Bertha

    This is a good chowder. I changed the prep a bit in that I sauteed the onions and the celery in the butter and then added the rest. Then I pureed the tomatoes into the soup instead of leaving them in chunks, just a preference for a smoother soup (and a 2 year old with texture issues!). I added the potatoes and fish last. I used all the ingredients and seasonings.It didn't say what kind of cheese so i used monterey jack because thats what i had. My husband commented that it would be even better it if were a bit spicey- so i might put some cajun seasoning on the table to go along with it. Thanks for a good recipe!
