1. In a medium bowl, combine the fish and shrimp, sprinkle with the lemon juice, and toss gently. Set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, warm the butter over medium-low heat until melted. Add the flour and curry powder, and cook, whisking constantly, until the flour is completely blended, about 3 minutes.
3. Whisking constantly, gradually add the fish broth and chicken broth. Add the salt and pepper, increase the heat to medium-high, and bring the mixture to a boil, whisking occasionally. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Add the fish and shrimp mixture, the peas, and cream, stir to combine, and simmer until the fish and shrimp are opaque, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the dill.
5. Ladle the chowder into 4 soup bowls and serve hot.
