Recipe for fish chowder

Serves 6

In restaurants, fish chowder is either superb or dreadful, mostly because some cooks have such a heavy hand with the flour and other thickeners, and the broth tastes pasty. At home, however, where you’re making a manageable-sized pot, the broth should have just the right body and creaminess. Here you get a little smokiness from bacon.
