New England Fish Chowder

What's the big idea?

New England is famous for its seafood, and this is a very popular recipe orginating from that region of the USA. This is a great, warming fish soup which is surprisingly filling - great for any USA-themed party in the winter months, be it a football (soccer) match or the Super Bowl, for example.
