This chowder is hearty and it’s great on a cold rainy day. Or when you just want to indulge yourself a little. If you don’t like cod, change the fish. You can add shrimp. (I don’t as I find they get too rubbery) You can add extra veggies likes carrots and/or broccoli stems, chopped fine. If you would rather use fresh shellfish, just remember that it has to be cooked to go in this chowder.
If you serve this as a main course, just add a little salad and some Country Biscuits or Homemade White Bread to complete the meal. Remember have fun and make it your own.
