Becky's Crab Chowder

Becky Merritt


I live on the Gulf of Mexico and my family and I enjoy the bounty of fresh seafood. We fish for grouper, snapper, fLounder, crabs and scallops, well just about everything that comes from the sea with a tail or a shell.

I'm always trying to tweek a recipe or make up my own. It is that time of the year for comfort food and this chowder is one of them. Serve with hot crusty french bread and ENJOY!
