  • About This Recipe

    “Before my husband developed his severe allergy to white fish, I used to cook it a lot. Found this recipe while going through some older binders. I do remember that the original recipe called for haddock, but I don’t really care for haddock and so used cod instead.”

  • Reviews

  • “This chowder was very good for the amount of prep and cook time. It was simple to make and was very tasty. I used 2% milk and butter, but I would imagine that using cream would make the recipe a little more luxurious. I would also imagine that you could use any firm fish or clams in this chowder.”

  • “A friend brought us 2lbs of Cod they caught in the waters off Salvage, Newfoundland.It demanded a Royal recipe, I’m very glad I found this one. Sorry I cheated a bit!(1/2 cup, Half&Half & 1/2 pat of butter, got no willpower)”

  • “I added 1 clove of garlic and cooked the potatoes with 1/4 cup clam juice instead of the water.It was fantastic.Topped it with parsley.”

  • “Had Lennie’s husband not developed a severe allergy to white fish would we be without this tasty soup? A simple, tasty beach house meal. Add an october evening, offshore breeze and an Australian Shiraz. I have a severe aversion to celery so I replaced it with bacon and thickened it with a bit with flour.”

  • “Very enjoyable, I will definitely make it again!I followed the recipe almost exactly – I used cream instead of milk and olive oil for the butter.Yum!”

  • “We enjoyed this simple concoction.We used 1% milk and a small can of mushroom stems & pieces instead of fresh mushrooms, and it still tasted very good. I was surprised that the pepper came through so convincingly. Very tasty.”
