  1. I love Manhattan style chowder but found myself w/o fish stock so I tried this. Too much tomato which overwhelmed the fish. It turned out more like a spaghetti sauce than a chowfer.
  2. Excellent chowder added only carrots to it enjoyed it very much. How about adding cheese tortelli might try that.
  3. Healthy easy delicious! Kids even ate it! I will make this from now on instead of my 50 ingredient cioppino I make at New years. Yum!
  4. I followed the recipe pretty much to a tee but didn't have enough halibut so I added some shrimp. Very good!

  10. This chowder is the BEST! My husband and I went to Alaska fishing a couple years ago and we brought a LOT of Halibut home with us. We got tired of most of the ways I fixed it until I found this recipe online. It has been a really big hit with everyone that tastes - Read more ...
