Shrimp corn chowder, Big loves it. Of course, corn is the first thing out of her mouth when I ask what vegetable she would like for dinner, so why wouldn’t she love it? I think if it were up to her, she would eat corn for every meal. Do you have a family member like that?
We belong to a CSA (community supported agriculture) and every Wednesday beginning in May and ending in mid-September, we pick up fruits, vegetables and eggs from local farmers.
I love belonging to a CSA. We get to eat food that is sustainably grown and I feel good knowing that we are supporting local businesses and eating healthy.
Right now, corn is in season and we seem to get at least a dozen ears every week. What we don’t eat, I freeze for the winter. I enjoy making sure we have good food all winter long.
How to make Shrimp Corn Chowder:
Shrimp Corn Chowder
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 white onion chopped
- 2 large carrots chopped
- 2 stalks celery chopped
- Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 1 jalapeño chile pepper chopped (To reduce the heat, remove the seeds.)
- 1 tsp paprika
- 3/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1 lb Russet potatoes peeled and cubed
- 3 cups fresh corn off the cob - about 3 large ears (frozen is good also)
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 lb medium shrimp peeled and deveined
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or stockpot on medium. Add onion, carrots and celery; season with salt and black pepper and cook until soft, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add jalapeño, paprika and thyme and cook for 1 minute, stirring well. Add 3 cups water, increase heat and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and reduce to a simmer until just tender, 7 to 8 minutes.
Add corn and milk; season with salt and black pepper, and simmer for 2 to 3 more minutes. Remove from heat.
Using a hand held blender, blend until semi smooth. If you don't have a hand held blender, place about 3 cups of the corn mixture in a blender and puree, then transfer purée back to pot, stir to combine and return to medium heat; bring to a simmer. (Be very careful with the hot mixture)
Add shrimp and simmer for 2 minutes or until shellfish are opaque in center. Remove from heat and serve
I like to top my chowder with a little grated cheese and some scallions.
This shrimp corn chowder is the perfect dish to use up our summer corn bounty. It is creamy and full of flavor. I love that it is a clean eating recipe also. As you know, Big and I are working toward a more clean way of eating and living.
I know that when the weather cools off, it will find it’s way on our menu again.
