Cheryl Creek of Anaheim Hills loved the fish chowder she had while cruising in Canada:
"I recently returned from a cruise to northeastern Canada and the U.S. While visiting Halifax, Nova Scotia, our tour took us to a charming Irish pub called Durty Nelly's for lunch. Several in our group ordered the seafood chowder. It was a delicious, creamy, flavorful and hearty bowl of chowder, but not fishy tasting. Can you please try to get the recipe?"Durty Nelly's was happy to share its recipe for this chowder, which is rich and satisfying. The restaurant also included its cheddar and green onion biscuits recipe, which it recommends serving alongside a bowl of the chowder.
