Terrific recipe! I've made this many times. I substitute shredded Swiss for gruyere as I haven't found shredded gruyere locally. I also halve the dill. I love dill but the full measure seemed to overpower the other flavors. Quick to put together quick to bake and great to make the day before.
New Favorite! Absolutely fabulous! I used fresh native cod frozen Argentine red shrimp langostinos (look like tiny lobster tails) and my own frozen clam juice that I save whenever I cook clams or mussels. I was worried that the cheese and Old Bay might overpower the flavor but the cheese just added a nice creaminess and the Old Bay was fine. My preference for fish in this casserole (or a seafood chowder) would be the most mild types such as cod haddock monk (would require cutting into small pieces as it is not a flaky fish) hake whiting flounder etc. fish and don't think I would like this with other more flavorful types such as mahi and striped bass (and certainly nothing oily like salmon etc.). Sea scallops would also be great in this. I may thin it and serve as a seafood chowder next time just for variety.
Delicious and comforting We loved it even though my husband is not a big fan of casseroles - he raved about it. Used cod canned lump crabmeat and about a dozen shrimp I had leftover. Didn't use bottled clam juice as I dont care for it - used canned fish stock. Loved the crunchy topping. This is definitely going to be made again.
Delicious This was a quick and easy dinner. I cook all of my meals for the week on Sunday to avoid overly busy weeknights. This dish kept well and was super satisfying. I substituted tilapia for the fish and only used shrimp. Used one bottle of clam juice and the rest chicken stock and substituted Swiss cheese. Served with roasted asparagus it was a hit! Will make this again especially because it was so easy! Pros: Easy Cons: none
Delicious! My husband loved it and raved about it. I did not deviate from the recipe except for the old bay; I din't have any so I substituted some creole seasoning and it turned out great. Will definitely make it again! Pros: absolutely delicious.
Perfect This dish was awesome. I followed the recipe and included my own modifications to suit my taste. I am not a fan of dill or celery so I added mushrooms and tarragon. Lastly I seasoned to my taste and it was absolutely perfect:). Thanks so much for sharing this recipe because it will definitely be a favorite of mine. Oh and for the leftovers since it makes 8 servings I simply packed the rest up in individual containers and put in the freezer for quick grab and go lunches...
Best flavored Chowder ever!!! I make a double batch of this eat the first batch as a soup (skipping the casserole steps) and then use leftovers as the casserole or freeze for later. Amazing both ways. This is the best flavor profile for chowder I have ever had!! Pros: Amazing Flavor! Cons: Quite a few steps but definately worth it!
This was yummy! I added panko crumbs to the breadcrumbs for more crunch and used onions instead of leeks and it turned out delicious. I also didn't have seafood stock so I used chicken stock and it was fine.
OMG! YUM! I used cod scallops and crab. Used tarragon instead of dill. Had plenty of breadcrumb topping. Turned out to be quite a bit more expensive than the printed cost per serving however. Will definitely make this casserole again!
I made this recipe and LOVED it. I did not find it more expensive than the listed price but did juggle the budget just a little- a bit more fish 2 oz less lump crabmeat some clams instead a bit less shrimp. But the proportions were not that far off. And I had leftover bread for breadcrumbs. I enjoyed the process of preparing it as well and my husband loved the end results as well. After trying this recipe I want to subscribe to the magazine.
Very tasty but heavy on the dill This was very tasty but I made some substitutions. I used butter to cook the leeks. I used dashi stock powder for the seafood stock. I substituted swiss cheese. Next time I would use half as much dill that was a little much for me. Cons: takes a long time
