You could always add 'extras' to your taste another time.
I sometimes add smoked paprika & it's nicer with real smoked fish.

I would love to try someone else's recipe, I'm a bit tired of making my usual, does anyone have a favourite to share?

Best I've ever made is Alyson Goftons Blue Cod and Bluff Oyster chowder, it's yummo. Google will find you the recipe.

I like
Jo Seagar's Smoked Seafood chowder.

100g butter
1 leek finely sliced
1medium onion
1 tab flour
1 cup fish stock ( use the liquid from the canned smoke fish, if using)
2 cups milk
1 cup sweet corn
1 potato diced into small pieces
1 x can of smoked fish fillets or 2 cups flaked smoked fish
2 cups approx mixed seafood
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup parsley
salt & freshly ground black pepper
Saute the leek & onion in the butter for 3 -4 minutes, then add the flour & stir well. Stir over a gentle heat & add the fish stock & milk. (I do this off the heat & add the liquid half at a time cook a bit & . it seems to come out creamier this way)
Add the rest of the ingredients, except the cream & parsley & simmer until thick & creamy.
Finally add the cream & parsley & season to taste (the smoked fish can be a little salty).
I sometimes add lemon zest & juice.
I've frozen leftovers.

Thanks much, nothing like a change in the middle of Winter.

If you are time poor, I sometimes buy a fresh pre-made one from the supermarket, and add extra fish/seafood, parsley and seasoning.
Does a couple meals, not as great as from scratch, but ok as a change and reasonably cost effective.

Seafood Chowder: Serves 6-8.

500gr mixed seafood, 1 litre water. 200gr butter, 200gr flour, 250 mls milk, salt and pepper.

Simmer seafood and water for 2-5 minutes. Melt butter, stir in flour and cook until thickens.
Slowly add fish and liquid. Season to taste. Add milk and cook gently a further 10 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon pepper if wished.
200 butter looks tho it may be too much, use what u would think. :)

Looks like it should be 20gms of butter AND flour.

The Chelsea Winter one is absolutely to die for.

My hubby has always loved Seafood Chowder. Every time we go to California we always get in served in a sour dough bun.

Have tried many recipes over the years but now stick to Chelsea's recipe.
