Here's a great warm treat for those cold fall and winter days, and a great way to use some of that Alaska Halibut or Cod you might have caught last summer.  When you run out, you can substitute with big Bay shrimp and any good, white fish.  Enjoy!

• 1 small can clams (reserve half of the juice)
• 1 cup diced celery
• 1 cup diced onion

• 2 cups heavy cream
• 2 teaspoons dill
