The great part about this chowder is that you can use any type of fish in the recipe. "My family eats a lot of fish, and I devised this chowder recipe to use with any leftovers. I serve it as a main course with salad and bread." -Claire Strom, Fargo, ND

This is very tasty. I used all 2% milk and thickened it with 2 Tb of cornstarch, which leaves no floury taste and turns out smooth. I also sauteed the onions first in a tiny bit of butter with some gold bell pepper and  garlic, and added a splash of white wine. We enjoyed this with some dinner rolls and a small salad of tomatoes, crispy lettuce,and blue cheese.

Excellent! I added some corn, limas, and peas. And I used cod instead of grouper.
