Seafood Chowder Recipe

Publisher Photo
"Our family requests this creamy chowder for Christmas Eve supper," reports Marlene Muchenhirn of Delano, Minnesota. "We enjoy it with a pot of chili, raw veggies, breadsticks and an array of baked goodies. It's an easy-to-serve and easy-to-clean-up meal between our church service and gift exchange."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2011

I should have read Stacy's comment first. I should add to my review a couple more thoughts: 1) I started the crockpot on High for several hours, then, when we arrived at church, I turned it to Low and cooked for about 3 hours. The vegetables were done just fine. 2) I was also concerned that the chowder might not have much flavor, and was prepared to add salt and pepper at least before serving, but we found it to be very flavorful.

We really liked this seafood chowder. I left out the imitation crab and, instead of canned shrimp, I used a 6-ounce bag of frozen salad shrimp. I just went ahead and added the clams and shrimp at the beginning with all of the other ingredients, and it worked out fine. Also, we simply sliced the carrots and diced the potatoes about 1/2" to 3/4" inch square. I took this to a potluck and it went over well. It was just thick enough without being too thick.

Even after 5 1/2 hours, the vegetables were not cooked all the way. The chowder did not have any flavor - very disappointed in this recipe.
