What is a Seafood Chowder?
A variety of different seafoods and vegetables cooked in a milk base to create a rich and hearty soup. A Seafood Chowder may contain an abundance of shellfish mixed with other fish or simply be all shellfish, depending on the recipe, the chef and the region in which the Chowder is being made.
SEAFOOD CHOWDER RECIPE
Heat a stockpot over medium heat. Add the butter and, when it's melted, add the onions and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and whisk until it's smooth, cooking for another minute (this will allow the raw flour taste to cook out).
Slowly pour in 1/2 cup of the chicken broth, whisking constantly, until it's smooth. Add the potatoes, remaining chicken broth, and creamed corn to the pot and stir well. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce the heat to keep it at a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes.
Add the scallops, shrimp, fish, clams, and half & half; stir gently. Simmer another 10 minutes.
Add the Old Bay, salt and pepper. Taste and add more seasoning if necessary. Ladle into bowls, top with the crumbled bacon (if using), and serve immediately.
