Fish Chowder

This fish chowder is made using a wheat flour & clam sauce base and filled with zucchini squash, carrots, onions and celery. The sauce is a thickened creamy base and very smooth. The perfect soup to serve with a grilled cheese sandwich. I make my grilled cheese sandwiches using 98% low fat cheese which melts up just like the fatter cheeses. So yummy dipped in this chowder.
