Made it exactly except added roasted green chille. OMG! My 9 year old was devouring it :)
Tilapia Corn Chowder
From EatingWell: July/August 2007
This light soup is a great way to slip fresh corn (and tilapia, of course!) into your late-summer menu. Make it a meal: Enjoy with a mixed green salad and oyster crackers.

To spice this up for a real chowder flavor, I added more kosher salt and Old Bay seasoning. Then I thickened with some cornstarch. Now it is absolutely delicious.
I made this without bacon since we cut pork out our diet and doubled the celery instead of leek and added a tbs dill. I used 3 ears corn and grated the 4th ... my husband had 3 bowls!!! Enough said!
I am always trying to find non-fishstick ways to get my kids to eat fish and they actually ate this soup. The fact that the fish is added right at the end and only cooks for 4 minutes keeps it from getting too fishy. Some of the ingredients were hard to find but I subbed in what I had on hand and it was still good.
I made this recipe yesterday substituting chopped shrimp for the tilapia. Will absolutely make this recipe again. Fresh thyme is a key ingredient for sure. Easy to prepare, quick to cook. I'm sure it's better in the summer when corn is fresh, but frozen sweet corn totally works in a pinch!
