This was decent, but it needs some work to be really good. The directions for cooking the bacon and onion are a little flawed. The bacon, when cooked with the onion and added to the soup, ends up turning rubbery in the broth. The chowder itself really lacks seasoning. It needs salt and garlic to really flavor it properly. The recipe calls for milk, but states in the direction "milk product". I used cream to give the chowder a thicker texture. I also used a potato masher to help thicken it before adding the fish. This left some of the potatoes chunky. To make this better if I make it again, I'd cook the bacon crisp and remove and drain it, then use the drippings to cook the onions and a clove or two of minced garlic. I'd save the bacon and garnish the chowder with it at the end, then allow diners to stir it in before eating. (I cooked extra bacon to use as a garnish.)
