Recipe: Quick Seafood Chowder

Print Friendly

As we enter the winter season, I find myself craving soups. This seafood soup is an old stand-by that everybody loves, and when my daughter asked me for the recipe this week, I was shocked that I had never written it down. Finally, I put this recipe to paper and I’m happy to share. Please know that if you don’t eat seafood or fish, you can leave it out and it will still be delicious.
