Smoked Fish and Chorizo Chowder

Smoked Fish and Chorizo Chowder 150 Author: Canadian Living Credits: Smoked Fish and Chorizo Chowder 150

Michael Howell, chef and owner of Tempest Restaurant in Wolfville, N.S., sent us this recipe for the rich, creamy and delightful chowder that is featured at his restaurant as part of the Taste of Nova Scotia's Chowder Trail. This recipe calls for smoked haddock, but any hot-smoked fish, such as trout or salmon, will work. Garnish with snipped fresh chives, if desired.
