Summer Shrimp and Corn Chowder

Kristin D


I made this the other night and LOVED it. Since I am trying to lose weight for an upcoming surgery, this seemed to be a nice change of pace for me.
A few notes:
1. I did not use the optional sliced chile.
2. I did not use green curry powder in mine, I used yellow, which is much milder. (I have bad heartburn, so the milder the better for me.)
3. I did not use the chiles.
4. I served it with a small side of couscous which was AMAZING. I highly recommend it. :)

If you have access to a stock bag, use it. That way, you won't have to fish for the lemongrass and ginger later on.

How to Make Summer Shrimp and Corn Chowder


  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed stock pot, heat olive oil over medium low. Add shallots and stir regularly until soft, about 2-3 minutes. Add lemongrass and ginger (in a stock bag, if you have it) and cook until fragrant, stirring, for another 2 minutes or so.
  2. Add chicken broth, coconut milk, fish sauce and curry.
    Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, add potatoes and cover. When potatoes are cooked but still firm, about 10 minutes or so, add the shrimp. Cover and cook until shrimp are cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Mix corn and remove pot from heat. Strain lemongrass and ginger from broth. (If you used a stock bag, simply remove and discard.)
    To serve, ladle into bowls and garnish with cilantro, green onions and chile slices (optional).
