SeaFood Chowder recipes at The BBC Food webpage

A few years ago, we went on a family holiday to Ireland. A week near Cork and then a week in Duncannon Co Wexford. On a day trip to Wexford, Irish national heritage park, we stopped off for a spot of lunch.
I thought I'd have something light to eat, and ordered what I thought to be just a fish soup and crusty rolls, actually a mixed Seafood Chowder. Wow what a meal, I was thoroughly stuffed!!

There was a good recipe in the Radio Times for a Seafood Chowder a few months ago, I havent cooked one yet, but I will have to try it.

Anyway, here's a link to a seafood chowder on the BBC website. It will probably need a little tinkering with to reduce the Salt/sodium content,
BBC Lifestyle Seafood Chowder

Or a Chunky Seafish Version

Yum yum,

Thanks Jon,
Looks good but being a Scot we have a simpler recipe and I think I will stay with it. It uses a Finnan Haddie or any lightly smoked white fish and is called Cullen Skink (usually made with leftover mashed potatos,making it even simpler!)

Thanks Fiona. I had to have a look for Cullen Skink, and lo and behold the Beeb have a Cullen Skink by Nick Nairn and another by
Mary Addison

I thought, there must be a Welsh version, and prolly plenty others from around the British coastline, so good old google came to my aid, and here is what looks to be the Welsh Version

Now I think I will have to pay a visit to Tovey's our local fresh fish shop.

hello Jon
Thanks,the Welsh page was interesting,but dont like the sound of Nicks soup, it has cabbage and no potatos,must have them,the other recipe looks better. I just make it with what I have, the basics ie fish,milk,potatos,seasoning etc and some cream
