Crockpot Shrimp and Corn Chowder
Cold blowing winds, snow, sleet and freezing rain are the least favorable parts of winter in the MidAtlantic area. But being inside toasty and warm with a big bowl of soup or chowder makes it more bearable.
Fortunately, we made it through November and December without a flake, but guess what…tonight’s forecast states that we are in for the first N’orester of 2016 which is a perfect day to make Crockpot Shrimp and Corn Chowder.
There are many online recipes for Crockpot Shrimp and Corn Chowder and I found this one at CrockPotGourmet.net . I added a few additional ingredients and left out the salty seasonings and it didn’t turn out as pictured on the website but it was very tasty nevertheless.
- 16oz bag frozen sweet corn
- ½ pound Baby Medley Potatoes
- 8 oz Baby Bella mushrooms
- 3 small Carrots diced
- ¼ cup Flour
- 4 cups Chicken Broth
- ½ cup Heavy Cream (for later)
- 12 oz Shrimp, small peeled deveined and tail-off (for later)
- Green Onions (scallions) diced
- 1/2 Green Pepper – diced
- Rosemary Sprigs (optional)
- 1 tsp Butter
- Salt, Pepper and Cajun Seasonings are optional which I excluded due to high sodium counts
- Wash and dice potatoes and carrots then cut into bite sized chunks
- Add potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and corn to slow cooker then toss to coat with flour
- Saute green peppers in butter until soft then add to crockpot
- Pour in broth
- Add a few sprigs of Rosemary and diced scallions
- Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours
- If on low, switch slow cooker to high
- Add cream, shrimp and Rosemary sprigs
- Cook for another 30-60 minutes until shrimp is cooked through and pink
My Shrimp and Corn Chowder turned out to be more of a soup/stew but when served with a crusty bread and a glass of wine then eaten while curled up on the sofa it doesn’t matter.
Did you really just say welcome winter???? Chowders are good. I’m trying to learn how to make a fish one like Legal’s.
Yes, you must admit we got off lucky in December and January. It is snowing like crazy now. Have a great weekend.
Stay warm and safe and I am no fan of winter
This chowder looks so good! I’ll be making a pot of chili tonight to keep the stomach warm. Stay safe out there Sis! #ProductReviewParty
Yes, just finished making chili for dinner tonight and tomorrow. Have a great weekend.
For me, anything with shrimps is a winner.
I agree 100% Have a great weekend my friend.
This looks delicious! It is my family’s favorite soup. Planning on making it next week. Right now my fridge is full of soups, which I absolutely enjoy all winter long. And yes, crusty bread and a glass of wine is the perfect accompaniment.
You are definitely a woman after my heart. Winter means soup and fortunately hubby and the mini men love it. Enjoy the weekend.
I like chowder but I would replace it with chicken since I don’t like shrimp. #productreviewparty
Yes, chicken corn chowder sounds yummy – will try that one next. Hope all is well on your side of the world.
I love different soups, stew, and chowders and this looks delicious.
I am sure you have a few healthy recipes for slow cooked soups, stews and chowders.
My husband might like that! I normally cook stews & soups in winter. 🙂
Even though it didn’t turn out exactly as the recipe I copied, it was pretty good. Let me know if you try it.
I want to come to your house for dinner! #ProductReviewParty
I’ll leave a place at the table for you! Thanks
