Crocktober: Simple Seafood Chowder

BT Calgary | posted Friday, Oct 23rd, 2015

This chowder is about as easy as it gets to make. It has a nice rich flavor and is loaded with seafood. In this recipe I use canned seafood and you can also substitute any other canned fish or seafood you have on hand into this recipe. Even tuna is nice in this chowder.

Ingredients:

  • 2, 170 gram cans of crab meat with juice
  • 2, 142 grams cans of baby clams with juice
  • 2, 540 ml cans of potatoes with juice
  • 2, 354 ml cans of evaporated milk
  • 2 cups raw shrimp, shells removed
  • 2 cups barbecued salmon, skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Fresh Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Crock pot: Set the heat on your crock pot to low and add all the ingredients except the shrimp and BBQ salmon. Cover and simmer for 6-8 hours. This will become the broth for your chowder.
  2. Uncover and discard bay leaves. Add the shrimp and the salmon, breaking up any large pieces with a fork. Do the same with the potatoes which should be soft.
  3. Cook for an additional 5 minutes until the shrimp are pink and the chowder is nice and hot.

Enjoy!
