I was incredibly surprised with just how good this was. You may be skeptical becuse there's no potatoes and no celery. It's not "traditional" but it is flavorful for having such simple ingredients. The creamed corn added a touch of sweetness while acting to thicken the soup a bit. I made this as written, just added 1 extra can of chopped clams. Thanx for sharing!
