About this recipe: A creamy fish chowder full of flavour! So warming in the winter, served with a big loaf of crusty bread. You can make it with skimmed milk, if you like. But it won't taste as creamy.
I like the concept of this dish but why skim milk if you are just going to add cream cheese and cream of mushroom. You should just start with double cream and add mushrooms thyme and whatever other seasoning you like. I made this as directed them again without using redundant ingredients and my second attempt tasted much better everything had more flavor and was less bland - 25 Aug 2013
This is without a doubt, the best chowder I have ever made. While I didn`t use Calamari, or Clams, I chose to use extra shrimp, crab and scallops. Five of my friends have asked for this recipe, and I have no hesitation in recommending it to all - 21 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Amazing! This is by far the best chowder I have ever had, and my family is from Maine! I tweaked it a bit, adding clam juice and omitting corn. This recipe is a hit in my family! - 01 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
