DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and devein the shrimp and cut into 1 inch pieces.
  • Cut large scallops in quarters, medium size ones in half, so that all are the same size. NOTE: Bay scallops (the small ones) may be used if sea scallops not available. No need to cut, since they are usually about the same size.
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Cook chile, shallots, garlic, scallions, ginger and bell peppers over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft but not browned.
  • Add the curry powder and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Add the fish stock ( or clam broth) and coconut milk and gently simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Just before serving, add the shrimp and scallops. Gently simmer for 2 to 3 minutes until the shellfish is firm. Add salt, pepper and more curry powder to taste.
  • Ladle the chowder into bowls and garnish each with chopped cilantro.
