We live next door to my grandpa-in-law who will make this chowder for us every once in a while. He makes the absolute best! While this is his recipe, I can't quite get mine to taste as good as his. He tells me that when Im 91 like him, my chowder will then be as good. If you like your chowder a little thicker, you can substitute 1 cup of half and half for 1 cup of milk or add a little extra evaporated milk. This chowder will taste even better if made a day ahead and allowed to "set" overnight. When reheating, do it slowly so as not to boil.
Whenever I make this for friends I usually triple the recipe, everyone fights over the last shrimp lol! Serve this with a long crusty baguette and lemon wedges. Plan ahead the shrimp needs to marinate for 1 hour. recipe#186029 works great for this!
This is an excellent, delicious, superb dish! Everyone asked for this recipe when I made it for Christmas dinner. You can add fresh sliced mushrooms too if you want before you layer the cheese on it. (the prep time includes refrigeration time)
I'm not a huge fan of zucchini, but like everyone else, I seem to end up with an abundance of them from the garden. I found this recipe on another site (can't remember which one) and I really enjoy it, though I can't say its all that healthy. Gotta love the cheese!
Quahogs are another name for hard-shell clams, and I know that at least in our region here in Maine, it refers to larger clams (as opposed to cherrystones). These are fairly easy to make, the worst part is the shucking, but I usually pass that job over to someone else. I eat these anytime I can get them. Update 10/16/2006. I've adjusted the cook times. We like them much better when they were cooked longer.
