Kelly's Kick'n MD Seafood Chowder

Kelly's Kick'n MD Seafood Chowder

“Thick, creamy, and full of sweet chunks of shrimp and crab meat this seafood chowder recipe is amazing. It takes a little time and babysitting the pot, but worth every minute. There is a slight bit of heat, so pull back on the red pepper and chipotle pepper if you don't like spice. Corn adds a touch of sweetness to the chowder that balances the spiciness. Chipotle peppers give a smoky flavor that sets this apart from other recipes. A little pricey to make, you won't make this every day but it's a restaurant-quality meal to make for special occasions. Perfect to warm you up during the cooler weather. And, it tastes better the next day so leftovers are delicious.” - Kitchen Crew

Ceviche Salad

Ceviche Salad

“Don't let the term ceviche scare you. Simply, ceviche is a dish made from chopped seafood that's marinated in fresh juice (like lime or lemon) and spices. As the dish marinates, the seafood absorbs the flavors and becomes opaque. This version uses shrimp and it's a refreshing salad. Simple to make, it's tangy with a kick of spice. We love the little bit of crunch crushed tortilla chips add. Wow everyone with this tasty dish at your next cocktail party or luncheon.” - Kitchen Crew

Broccoli Shrimp Casserole

Broccoli Shrimp Casserole

“Broccoli shrimp casserole is a favorite of mine. There are so many different cheeses that can be used, experiment. For gluten-free, wheat-free, use Progresso gluten-free broccoli soup instead or equivalent and don't add the milk. All Campbell soups contain wheat and are not gluten-free. For vegetarians leave out the bacon.” - Dennis
