I thought this made an excellent chowder and my husband and two daughters agreed. I made a few changes based on other reviewers' comments. We like a lot of flavor, so I added 1 tsp parsley, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1.5 tsp of the bay seasoning. I think I will try 1tbs of the bay seasoning next time. I also increased the celery to 3 stalks, used a whole small onion (chopped), and put in half a container of baby bella mushrooms (sliced). I used fat free evaporated milk and 2 tbs of olive oil instead of the butter to help cut some calories. Everyone still thought it was rich enough, but it definitely did not have the richness of chowder from a restaurant because of the removed fat, I'm sure. Next time I will probably add even more celery and mushrooms. The amount of potatoes was perfect. The cod worked wonderfully in this recipe. We did sprinkle store bought bacon bits over the top when it was completed and it was a nice touch. I might try a dab of hot sauce added next time right before serving as someone else suggested.
