Our family has had a  love affair with fish and all things from the sea for generations. Being in the fishing industry our family was blessed to always have an endless supply of fresh seafood at their finger tip. For generations, the women in our family  took it upon themselves to continually created new recipes using what was plentiful and in season. During the winter months of my childhood haddock was like chicken in our homes, and Haddock Chowder was served at least once per week.  The sweet white fish has always been a family favorite. I remember Grandma Felicia teaching my mother and aunts how to make her delicious chowder with fresh fish, from Captain Joe & Son’s, in her downstairs kitchen. Today her recipe is still prepared and served for lunch with hot Italian bread, and for dinner as a side dish accompanying baked or fried haddock.  Either way…it was and still is…always delicious!
