Bacon, Shrimp, and Corn Chowder

Bacon, Shrimp, and Corn Chowder created by Alskann

As with most chowders, this is much better served the second day. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, reheat and serve! Sometimes I will add some crushed red pepper when I saute the onion. The Maine shrimp can be substituted with other small shrimp.

  • Add corn, bacon and shrimp and cook until the shrimp are opaque.
  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove from heat and cool.

    Very tasty. After I cooked the potatoes, I used a potato masher to smoosh them up, to disguise them, since my daughter thinks that the only kind of potatoes she likes are french fries. I also drained the corn before I added it. I used half-n-half and evaporated milk, but didn't add any regular milk, since I thought it was soupy enough. Everybody thought the chowder was yummy.

    Sorry this just didn't work out for me as written. Not sure where I went wrong. Followed exactly except doubled. First off, I never really make corn chowders so that could be the problem. Recipe never specified to drain corn so I drained the corn, It had a really off sweet taste. 2nd, I did not add the extra milk as it was already soup consistency after adding the other milks. Was going to eat the same day but could not fix the sweet problem. Put in fridge, ran to store to make another dinner, tried it the following day. Long story short, had to add cream of chicken soup to get past the extremely sweet taste. Then it was pretty good. But with all the good reviews I'm sure I messed it up somewhere. Sorry.

    Excellent flavor combination. Loved the addition of the shrimp. I used a low fat evaporated milk, 1/2 & 1/2 for the light cream and 2% milk to help with the calorie count and it worked great. I coursely chopped my shrimp also to make for easier eating. Will make this again. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PRMR :)

    My husband and I prepared this together last night precisely as the recipe states. It smelled heavenly while cooking. Brought the teenage boy scrambling down the steps to inquire what was for dinner. He was utterly devastated to find out it was for tonight's dinner. DH and I had decided to get a sneak taste and had some for lunch... Delicious! Thanks for a spectacular chowder :)

    I loved this! I did change up the Mrs. Dash...used 1 tsp original, 1 tsp garlic & herb, and then used 1 tsp Old Bay for the seasonings. I used some Cavendar's Greek and left out the salt and pepper. I also left the milk out, otherwise, my chowder would have been too liquidy. I can't imagine adding anymore liquid, or the chowder would be too thin. Made for PRMR tag, and I thoroughly enjoyed the tag! Thanks for posting a great recipe.
