Fish Chowder....WOW!

Last night I made this fish chowder that was amazing!!!! It's from, and 149 people there gave it high ratings, so I thought it must be good, and boy was it! So if you want a chowder that doesn't taste like it came out of a Progresso can, than try this...I think you'll like it. Or if you've never been brave enough to have fish chowder, than you try this too! It's easy to make!

Serves 8

2 tablespoons butter
2 cups chopped onion
1 stalk celery, chopped
4 cups chicken stock
4 cups diced potatoes
1 1/2 pounds cod or Polluck, diced into 1/2 inch cubes
1/8 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM, or to taste
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 cup clam juice
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans evaporated milk

In a large stockpot, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Saute onions, mushrooms and celery in butter until tender.
Add chicken stock and potatoes; simmer for 10 minutes.
Add fish, and simmer another 10 minutes.
Season to taste with Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix together clam juice and flour until smooth; stir into soup. Remove from heat, and stir in evaporated milk. Serve.
