    Other than using regular potatoes, I went by the recipe and had very good results. My DH had 2 bowls and asked for the leftovers for lunch at work! Even my DS and DD loved it, which makes it a winner for my family! It's now in my favorites folder waiting to be made again!

    This was wonderfully appealing and tasted marvelous. It is perhaps thinner than other chowders but is just fine as is because of all the vegetables and shrimp. I took some other reviewers' suggestions to heart and made my own hashbrowns by cubing and parboiling some potatoes, setting some aside to be fried for a garnish. I used skim and evaporated milk and fish stock made from shrimp shells rather than the water. I can appreciate why this is your friend's Christmas Eve tradition, Heather.
