i used this recipe for the spice mix...it is really good. a lot of clam or seafood recipes do not have any spice except for s and p. the only thing i added was cayanne pepper, only because i like a lot of heat...it was delicious!!! we go fishing at least once a year on the pacific and catch a lot of salmon and halibut. this spice mix is great for halibut chowder...my recipe is so easy...here it is. 5 med potatoes,one onion, 6 slices thick smokey bacon,one beer,one box chicken stock,one cup half and half cream,two lbs halibut,and one cup sharp cheddar cheese and if u like corn add a can of that too, and one heaping tbsp of the cliff house spice mix. in a non stick pan, fry bacon till almost crisp and then add onion...cook until done. in a large pot, boil cut up potatoes in the chicken stock and beer mixture until done, add bacon,onion,spice,cream and corn,bring to a simmer and add halibut chunks at the very end along with the cheese,let simmer a couple of minutes and season with salt and pepper,then enjoy the best halibut chowder i've ever had.
