    Very good!! Light but with a lot of flavor. I used fresh shrimp instead of the canned and added a little fresh snapper as well as the cod. I will definitely make this one again. - 10/26/10

    My husband says this is "good" and would give it 5 stars! We don't have any other fish chowder recipes to compare it to. I had 2 pounds of cod that I didn't want to eat but knew i needed to cook. I'm glad i found this recipe! I tried to double the recipe w/ half the cheese. Great! Yum! :) - 3/29/10

    This turned out awesome. I didn't have all the ingredients on hand but I made do. My father loved it too. He said excellent. I used one medium onion though and added some shredded carrot instead of celery. I also used small fresh shrimp instead of canned. Andd added some garlic to the onions. - 1/27/10

    This turned out really good. I added scallops instead of shrimp, since I had some of those in the freezer, and a little corn. I didn't add any salt at all. The house smells so good now! - 3/30/09
