This recipe was great! I too added some extra veggies (corn) and some milk before serving. The spice was nice - not too much. Served w/some cheddar garlic biscuits as our meal - so good. Thanks so much!

I made some modifications (I always tend to with soups it seems), but this turned out really great. I used larger quanitites of vegetables for my pound of rock shrimp. 2 stalks celery, 1 onion, 1 large carrot, 2 cloves garlic, 1 green bell pepper, 1 russet potato and 1 large parsnip. I totally flaked and forgot the tomatoes and parsley. My rock shrimp were already shelled, so I just used homemade vegetable broth instead. I kept the spice measures about the same, only using 1/4 tsp of the chili pepper as I have African Bird pepper and its a force to be reckoned with- it was still plenty spicy! I also added about 1/2 tsp of Emeril's Essence Creole Seasoning (#41970), which went nicely, I thought. I added about 1/3 cup milk too at the end as I like my chowders creamy. Really tasty. I think that the recipe made as specified here would also be delicious- I just tend to prefer a high veggie to meat ratio. I got about 6 fair-sized servings from this. As BF said, "This is a 5-Star soup!" We really enjoyed it. Thanks!
