    I had been looking for a seafood stew or chowder recipe for a while, and found this. My husband told me this is exactly the kind of chowder he’s been wanting. It was perfect as is!

  2. Sooooo tasty! I’m not huge fish eater so this is a great way for me to get more fish in my diet. I wish the kids had liked it more.

  3. I made this tonight using pollock and milk instead of cream. I also added a bay leaf for flavor. It was delicious with toasted bread and a side salad. Going into the recipe carousel. Thank you!

    Love this chowder. I don’t feel it is necessary to use bacon. I have made this twice now, and we really love the flavor combination. For two people, I use an eight ounce piece of halibut.

  5. This looks awesome! Can this be lightened up for heart healthy patients? Can the bacon be replaced with olive oil? Can the heavy cream be a light cream?

    My 6 year old had 2 helpings of this last night and then asked to have it for breakfast! Thank you for another awesome recipe! You have no clue how many of your recipes I use all of the time! Probably at least 5 a week! : )

    I made this tonight and it is delicious! I followed the recipe but used wild salmon, added a cup of frozen organic corn and doubled the thyme. The thyme is key. I saved about half of the potatoes and used my inversion blender to thicken. I only used a dash of half and half– soup is rich without it! I highly recommend serving the spinach with hot bacon dressing salad from Lisa’s first cookbook along with the chowder. This meal was a big hit with my family.

  8. What would a mainly vegetarian version of this be? We don’t eat meat but we do eat fish. I’ve made something similar before – a potato-cod chowder – but it was quite bland so any suggestions on how to make it flavorful for non-meat eaters appreciated!

    My son was sick and I couldn’t leave the house so I made it with what I had. (If I had that laughing/crying emoticon, I’d put it here because I changed the recipe so much!) It was still incredibly delicious. Beef stock, a combination of tilapia and frozen salmon, leeks instead of celery, and because of the leeks, I switched the thyme to nutmeg. :0D It was fantastic and I ate three bowls of it.

    My dear, sick, feverish three year old? Not so much. He ate three spoons of it. All he could stomach was goldfish cracker, Gatorade, and colby jack cheese. Usually, there’s no way in heck that would be his dinner, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do, I guess. ;0)

      Maybe cauliflower? Cauliflower is a good potato sub elsewhere, so it might work here.

      This looks absolutely delicious. Definitely going on my must-try list!

  10. I make a similar chowder in my instant pot! I sautée bacon and set it aside, then sautée onions and add potatoes and carrots (and sometimes corn). I put in enough broth to barely cover the veggies, then place 2-3 frozen salmon filets on top. I cook on manual for 3 minutes, remove the salmon, flake it and return it to the pot, and add just enough milk or cream to make it creamy. I use the bacon as a garnish.
