This sweet and smokey shrimp potato & corn chowder hits all the right notes! Loaded with tons of sweet corn, silky potatoes, smokey bacon, and of course sweet and tender shrimp!
After I made those Coconut Fried Shrimp the other day I had mentioned I was going to make shrimp stock so I could make soup, and yum! It was so worth it to peel all those shrimp. 🙂
Now you don’t have to use shrimp stock if you want to make this. Chicken stock would work just fine, but if you want to go the extra step to make shrimp stock, just throw a pounds worth of shrimp shells with garlic, onions, celery, carrots, whole peppercorns and 6 cups of water into a pot and let simmer away.
This chowder is super similar to the Smokey Ham, Potato, and Corn Chowder that I love, but instead of ham I used shrimp instead. This is actually my second batch. I made more to share with my neighbor. 🙂
This has been such a warm winter so far but we’ve had a few cool days and nights and this soup is the perfect fix to eat out of a big mug while curled up on the couch watching a movie.
It’s so satisfying and comforting. I hope you love it! 🙂
I’m such a sucker for a great soup or stew. Here’s some more that I love to make this time of year…
I hope you give them a try!
Talk to you soon friends, take care!
