Fish Chowder


Recipe: Manhattan-style Fish Chowder

This recipe puts a Louisiana twist on tomato-based Manhattan-style chowder (in contrast with creamy "New England" style) with the trinity, cayenne, and your favorite kind of firm white fleshed Louisiana fish, like trout, red snapper, red fish, even tilapia in a pinch. Add some nice crusty bread on the side and it's dinner time.
