So creamy and delicious. My favorite version is from the Caribbean Soup Company, and I've tried to copy their recipe. This is so good on a cold day! Add scallops if you like to the first part!

This was wonderful! Pure comfort. I made this exactly as written except for using imitation crab in place of the crab claw meat.For the broth I used French 75. We'll definitely be having this again. Made for Photo Tag.

What a great tasting chowder this is! I made the recipe as given, even though I was very generous with the corn! Really enjoyed the crab & shrimp in this chowder & will be making it again for New Year's Eve! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits tag]

I have not yet tried this recipe, but I know that it also should have cillantro in it. I asked the cook once when I was there. It is my favorite soup and now I get it every time I go.
