To Die for Fish Chowder

Fish Chowder is something that I don’t make often, however, when I do we enjoy every bite of it. This Fish Chowder version is magnificent, for sure a to die for fish chowder recipe!

Fish Chowder
This fish chowder is literally to die for. It is the first time I have made something like this and let me tell you this one recipe is going to be made for years to come. It was so comforting, tasty and unique that I could not believe how good it was. Better than at restaurants. I don’t know how much money they can charge for something like this but I bit a lot.

I hardly ever go out to eat because I am very specific about food. I like to know what I am eating and since I like to use the best quality ingredients eating at home is easiest.

If you haven’t make chowder before I urge to try this chowder version, you will not be disappointed.


Here you can see that I got the ingredients together. The right picture is the Mahi Mahi. A very yummy fish. It holds together very well once cooked. 1 lb cost me about $5.50 so is not that bad.
