~ New Years Eve Shrimp Chowder ~ Cass's

Cassie *


This New Years all but my daughter wanted shrimp. So, I decided to make a chowder ( my recipe ) for starters and we'll have scampi later.
I'm making my daughter a turkey wedgie sandwich as she loves them. Her loss as this soup was awesome! So comforting and so easy!

Happy New Year!

How to Make ~ New Years Eve Shrimp Chowder ~ Cass's


  1. Peel, de-vein and rinse shrimp. Set aside.

    In a dutch oven, place potato cubes, carrots, celery, onion, water, bouillon paste, old bay, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cover. Simmer for 20 - 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Mix water and flour. Once potatoes are tender, stir into the potato mixture. Simmer another 2 minutes, then add the shrimp, evaporated milk, corn and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted, then just heat through until shrimp is pink.
  3. Taste and re season if need be.

    Ladle into serving bowls, sprinkle with some chives if desire and serve with a good crusty bread or oyster crackers.

    We just loved how this turned out.

    Happy New Year!
