To die for hearty, creamy Seafood Chowder from serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com.

Seafood Chowder is to die for.

It's perfect for a New Years Eve party or just because your craving hearty, seafood, comfort food. I usually make Cioppino for Christmas Eve, but I was craving something a little bit heartier this year, and Seafood Chowder hit the spot. Colt ate 3 bowls alone, and the kids just couldn't get enough.

You can use whatever seafood is on sale or available. Lobster and mussels would also make great additions, the possibilities are endless.

Make this soup soon. It's so creamy and delicious.

Your stomach will thank you for it!

  1. Does it taste fishy? Want to make this for Super Bowl but my sister is worried about the fishy taste possibly?

    1. It tastes like Seafood. Whatever you add to it, it will taste like. Cods a pretty mild fish and not very strong. Just make sure to use fresh seafood.
