This fish chowder is one of the easiest recipes to prepare. It takes just 5 minutes to prepare, and cooking time is only 10 minutes.
Fish soup is one of the soups one can have in summer or winter. In summer, you can have fish chowder together with a couple of beers (of course, you have to take into account the nutritional values of the beers, but according to my Weight Watchers' Points guide, a full strength beer is worth 1 point each).
In winter you can have this dish as a light lunch or dinner, or as an additional dish to complement your main dinner dish. It's only 3 WW points and, if you play your cards well, it would go well with another main dish worth 4 or 5 points, and still be within your daily budget. ;-)
Fish is one of the foods with the lowest content of fat, and the fat it contains happens to be good Omega-3 fat, which is good for you. Therefore you should eat fish at least once a week or take Omega-3 fat supplements.
