Fantastic! I used 2 cups milk and 2 cups half and half for a slightly richer base.I also added lemon juice and more pepper. I used salmon as I didn't have any haddock.

Fairly blah - I was somewhat disappointed. It was okay but not one of the best chowder recipes I have tried. Not sure what to do to kick it up to the next notch. Thanks for the basics though.

My kids said it was the best seafood chowder they ever had. I did manage to save a bowl for the next day but I thought it was better on day one.
