When you think of soup, fish might not be the first thing that comes to mind…until now.  I discovered a phenomenal recipe, posted on dwfonline.com, that shows you a great way to cook that walleye you have caught, or are going to catch.  It is described as “a delicious, artery-clogging, stroke-inducing soup/chowder that just begs to be modified to your individual taste!  Substitute freely to suit your taste and serve with crusty bread!”

Check out this mouth-watering recipe, and let us know what you think.
