"A great, easy chowder made with bacon, potatoes, corn and fish. You can replace the milk with half-and-half or cream and the fish with seafood if you want a richer chowder."

  1. Cook bacon in a soup pot over medium heat until crisp and brown, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in the pot. Cook and stir onion and red bell pepper until softened, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in garlic and seafood seasoning and cook and stir 2 more minutes.
  2. Pour in chicken broth and stir in potatoes and corn; add water if needed to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low; simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in milk and butter until butter has melted; mix in reserved bacon. Bring the soup just to the boiling point and stir in cod and parsley; cook, stirring occasionally, until fish flakes easily, 5 to 8 minutes.

Very delicious recipe! Can be made with any whitefish.

This is my first attempt at a fish chowder and I'm very pleased. I didn't have any cod so I used a combo of salmon and scallops. I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried parsley and added i...

I AM IN LOVE!!! This is amazing! I used left over fish from last nights dinner and added more fish. I used cream instead of milk. Over all this is a HUGE winner of a recipe! THANK YOU for sharin...

Good Cape Cod style recipe. Will make whenever I am hankering for the ocean.

Although the flavor was terrific, we like our chowder a bit thicker, so I will probably make a roux next time. I did not have any white potatoes, so I used sweet potatoes and it turned out great...
