If there's one thing I've given up ordering in restaurants, it's soup. Why? Too salty. But for the last year or so, I've been making soup like crazy.
I am not a huge fish fan. I like cod and haddock, and that's about it. (Although I've heard raves about deep sea bass. I'm just too cheap to order anything "market value" in a restaurant.) But several years ago, on a trip to Maine, I got brave and ordered fish chowder. It was DE-LISH!
I've been thinking about that fish chowder for a l-o-n-g time. The last time we had lobster, I kept the skeletons (what other word is there for it?) and boiled them up to made lobster broth, and then I froze it. Now every time I see that container of broth, I feel like i ought to make the fish chowder. The problem?
I can't find a fish chowder recipe I like.
The chowder I had in Maine was not milk-based, but every recipe I've found in books or online is. I suppose I could just make a milk-potato-fish chowder and would probably enjoy it. But what I guess I'm leading to is this:
Does anyone have a good fish chowder recipe?
