At our local grocery store when they have a special on fresh Halibut, and it says "whole" once the fish is cut up, the backbone, and tail pieces are discarded to be thrown away. This makes the best soup stock and is meaty enough to make a wonderful chowder. Ask if you could have some.

This is what I would call 'restaurant quality soup.' Very good! You will love this soup if you like seafood, which I definitely do!

Place in soup kettle and simmer 1 hour until thickened. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley and a very thin lemon slice.

Low fat milk and clam juice are the secrets to the lower fat and saturated fat content of this satisfying supper soup.
