    The best Seafood Chowder l have ever had was at Fishermans Wharf San Francisco Bay, This Recipe was right up there..... Thanks for sharing.... 😉 The only change l made to this recipe was pre cooking Carrots and Cubed Potatoes so that they were not too crunchy, but not mushy either.... This added guts and a bit of thickening to the soup part. I also added a bit of White Wine as it tended to be on the thick side. Secret is to heat thoroughly, but not to let it boil. Be careful not to over cook seafood marinara as it can become tough.... 10/10...... 😁  -  03 May 2017


    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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
