A wonderfully rich, yet healthy creamed soup. From Taste of Home Healthy Cooking Dec 2008. You won't believe the richness from a lighter soup. I should mention that being from Maryland, I add Old Bay Seasoning and it takes it right over the top!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a dutch oven, saute shrimp and scallops in 1T of butter until shrimp turn pink. Remove and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, saute veggies in remaining butter until tender. Sprinkle with flour; stir until blended. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return seafood to pan; heat through.

Great soup! I made this with a mixed bag of shrimp, calamari, and scallops. I also used white wine and added more cayenne. The soup was great on a cold, rainy day.

wow! best soup i ever made. my celery had gone bad and i didn't have any red sweet pepper. so, i added garlic (i add garlic to everything), doubled the meat, used the "meat broth" to cook the onion/garlic. added chopped clams and a dozen live clams to the boil part, a bunch of old bay, a little more white wine, celery salt since my celery pooped out (so between that and the old bay, i didn't add salt), a little more wine, a big can of crab claw meat. very rich and seafood tasting but very low fat with the skim and i used no fat 1/2 and 1/2.
