Crafted with care and expertise, this seasoning adds a depth of flavor that transforms even the simplest of dishes into gourmet delights.

But the true pièce de résistance? The seafood mix, a luxurious assortment of salmon, lobster, crab, shrimp, scallops, or haddock, each morsel tender and succulent as it simmers gently in the fragrant broth. Paired with tender baby potatoes, fresh dill, and a generous splash of heavy cream, this chowder is a celebration of coastal abundance and culinary ingenuity.
