Rich And Creamy Seafood Chowder Recipe

This delicious creamy seafood chowder recipe will have you feeling like you are eating right on the coast. With tasty ingredients like scallops, shrimp, crab and calamari, this chowder really delivers on the seafood flavor.

Of course, you can substitute whatever you have on hand; a flaky whitefish like haddock would work well, as would octopus, lobster, and mussels. This chowder is adaptable.

This is a wonderful winter soup. It is hearty and thick, with lots of solid ingredients that you can enjoy. While some home cooks may be intimidated by a seafood chowder, this recipe is very simple and delicious.

Before you know it, you can serve your family restaurant quality chowder. Serve it up with some thick slices of crusty bread or you can even serve it in a bread bowl. If you want to lighten it up, have a small side salad to help cut the richness.

Leftovers are great the next day. The flavors get more time to blend together, giving the soup a wonderful taste of the sea. By all means, go with your favorite seafood varieties or go with what is on sale. This chowder is just as good with only shrimp as it is with the selection posted in the recipe.

Do not miss out on this delicious recipe just because of your budget. Serve this seafood chowder during the holidays, for an everyday dinner, or when you have guests. It is so good you will want to make it a permanent part of your menu.
