I saw a recipe on the internet that gave me the inspiration for this delicious chowder. I am always on the lookout for ways to put more fish into our diet and catfish is one of my favorite fish. I also want to use recipes that can be done in the Instant Pot. I put this together using things I had on hand. It turned out to be delicious so I am sure that this will become a regular item on our table.
