A deliciously cheesy chowder. Catfish is simmered with celery, carrots, potatoes, milk, chicken stock and cheese. Serve with thick hunks of fresh, crusty bread.
Good chowder! I did make a few changes. Sauteed the onions & celery together. Added a couple spoonfuls (no, didn't measure!) of flour to the onion/celery/butter mixture to make more of a roux, then added broth, milk, carrots, potatos. Also added marojam, oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, dash of paprika, and a bay leaf. Let the potatos and carrots cook for longer (we like softer). We really enjoyed! - 27 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
THIS WAS EXCELLENT!! I bought some catfish nuggets on sale and didn't know what the heck to do with them. Then I saw this recipe and gave it a try. I had some LEFTOVER Shrimp and Corn and threw that in to bulk it up. This is so versitile I will definitly keep this one handy. Thanks Kathy!! - 05 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband told me to give this recipe five stars! I followed the recipe exactly except for a couple of substitutions: instead of milk (I was out) I used a mixture of heavy cream and water (2 parts water, three parts heavy cream), instead of chicken broth (I was out of that too) I mixed some water and chicken flavored Top Ramen mix together and it turned out great. I used extra sharp, aged cheddar cheese which gave it a nice flavor. I also added a pinch of Tony's Cajun seasoning and topped the whole thing off with paprika. Really delicious, especially if you have some extra catfish and don't know what to do with it. - 22 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
