Quick & delicious

We had about a cup and half of grilled walleye which I substituted for the clams, also had one ear of precooked corn, which I cut from the cob and added. Yummy! Served with buttery, fresh basil crustinis.

The Best

I have made this chowder a few times now and everyone that has tried it has said it was The BEST chowder they ever tasted! Easy Recipe with great results.

delicious and easy

This chowder was great and quick and easy to make. My family loved it, I doubled the recipe. I took advice from other posters. I use fresh clams instead of canned, so I added the juice from steaming the clams. I added a tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley once the clam chowder was cooked. I also added black pepper and a dash more worcestire sauce then what the recipe called for. The kids can't wait for me to make it again. I was worried that adding the clam juice might might make the chowder to watery, but it was perfect!

clam chowder

How easy to make and it tastes great. Both my husband and grandkids said that it was some of the best clam chowder they had ever tasted.

I had never tried worscestshire sauce in a clam chowder before. It added a nice little kick. This was a very easy recipe and we all liked it. A tossed salad, a loaf of crusty French bread and this great soup was the perfect comfort meal! I did add more clams than specified, for a little extra protein, but we finished every drop and morsel!
