Expert Tips

Halibut is a bit more expensive than some fish, but it provides a wonderful flavor and texture to this chowder. If you like, any firm fish can be used.

It's best to leave the fish fillets whole when you cook them. If you cut up the fish it will flake into tiny pieces instead of staying in nice chunks.
