Florida Cracker Conch Chowder

Florida Cracker Conch Chowder created by FLKeysJen

My father-in-law shared this recipe with me and I knew I had been accepted into the family. This recipe has been passed down generation after generation. Back in the day, his family would camp on empty islands, fish all day and make chowder in the evening. It is delicious.

    Good! In the Florida Keys, a tomato based conch chowder is more typical. The fish, not the conch, is the star of this dish since there was lots of it. I was not sure when to add the cream and the potatoes were undercooked. The chowder does not have much flavor as is, but was delicious with lots of sriracha sauce.
