Yummy! Yum! I changed a few things just because I didn't have some things on hand! Added Half & Half to make it more of a chowder type of meal. My kids and everyone else LOVED it!-10 Aug 2012

This soup is so delicious! The bacon adds a really nice flavor to the seafood. We had a frozen halibut filet, so we just put the whole filet into the chowder 1 hour (as it says in the recipe) and then just used a fork to separate it. VERY GOOD!-21 Jul 2012

I swapped out the halibut with a standard COD steak filet because I didn't want to pay $19.99 per pound. It was very watery so I needed to add a roux made of butter, flour, and the broth. Overall it was good but I feel it was more related to a soup than a chowder.-21 Sep 2012

Crawfish Chowder in the Slow Cooker

This recipe come from an Eat at Home reader. Lynn from This Day Has Great Potential emailed me to say she has a fantastic recipe for the Slow Cooker Soup series.

Lynn says this is the easiest kind of soup to make. All of the ingredients go in the slow cooker and then you turn it on. Can’t get easier than that!

I have never had crawfish before. The soup calls for frozen crawfish tails. Lynn says you can find them in the frozen section of most grocery stores. She found hers at Save-A-Lot. She explains, “ You do absolutely nothing to them. I ran the frozen package under warm water enough to loosen them up to dump into my pot. But really could have thrown them in as-is. That’s why I thought I’d share with you. It goes right along with the series you ran recently. No preparation or cooking anything beforehand.”

Doesn’t that soup look so creamy, warm and satisfying? I love that this recipe is so different from any I’ve tried before. I can’t wait to make it for my family (although, I think I may be sneaky and not tell them that it’s crawfish!).

Skinny on Slow Cooker Spicy Seafood Chowder

This low fat slow cooker spicy seafood chowder is amazingly rich, thick and creamy without a lick of cream.

Evaporated fat-free milk and instant potato flakes.

I used a combination of small cooked shrimp and Alaskan pollock fillets, but you could really use whatever seafood you like best.

Tried this recipe? Let us know how it was!

  • Haddock chowder is wonderful and this recipe works really well with haddock.
  • Use any boned white fish for this except very thin fish like sole. The sole will virtually disappear into the chowder because it is very thin and will break up as it cooks.

If you like this recipe, please take a moment to share it on your favorite social media. Thanks a lot.

Here are a couple of comments on this recipe transferred from the older design of the site:

I used some left-over Cooked Rockfish I had already cubed for fish tacos the previous night. I had no canned tomatoes so I just diced up 2 fresh organic ones. This was good, even the kids ate it:)

Fish Chowder changes

by jean
(nova scotia, canada)

an old , English style recipe that my family has used for years – but -.
go easy on the tomatoes – a bit tooo much in this recipe – the chowder needs color , not an overpowering taste of tomatoes – use half the can , freeze the rest for later use . oops . do not use a can of tomatoes in herb/ garlic !!

Simple Slow Cooker Seafood Meals and Crock-Pot Recipes

Happy official first day of fall! Now that temperatures are starting to drop and leaves are slowly starting to change, we’re all about indulging in a few of our fall favorites: apple picking, hayrides and, most importantly, comfort food! Fall is the perfect time to embrace the coziest of foods – we’re talking all the soups, stews and chowders you can get your hands on. There’s just something about warm cup of soup that forces us to slow down, eat mindfully, and may even be responsible for an extra bit of happiness at the end of a long day! For this type of cooking, it’s time to dust off that slow cooker that’s been hiding in the back of your pantry since the beginning of summer.

Even if holding a hot cup of soup doesn’t make you feel happier, coming home to a warm meal that’s ready to eat will! While you may not immediately think of seafood when it comes to slow cookers, you’ll be grateful for the delicious and nutritious fish and shellfish recipes you can master in one pot. If you’re a fan of the “set it and forget it” method, we’ve gathered up a few appropriate seafood recipes for you to test out.

celery stalks, chopped, divided

Yukon Gold potatoes, divided

low-sodium chicken, fish or vegetable stock, divided

lean, firm white fish (such as cod, rockfish or haddock), cut into 1-inch pieces

white wine vinegar, optional

Chopped celery leaves or parsley, for garnish


Warm the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat and sauté the onion, garlic and half of the celery until the onion is soft and translucent. Meanwhile, peel and chop 3 of the potatoes (makes roughly 2 cups). Add the potatoes, white wine and 3 cups of the stock to the pot and bring to a boil.

Lower heat and simmer for 7-10 minutes, or until potatoes are very soft. Remove pot from heat. Blend until smooth with an immersion blender or in batches with a countertop blender. If needed, add some of the remaining 1 cup stock to thin soup to desired consistency. Taste and add a little salt if needed.

Return pot to stove and bring back to a simmer. Meanwhile, dice the carrot and remaining potato. Add the diced carrot, potato and remaining chopped celery to the soup and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the potato pieces are soft but not falling apart. Add the fish and simmer for 5 minutes more, or until fish is cooked through. Taste and add a little vinegar if soup needs some brightness. Garnish each serving with celery leaves or parsley.
