REcipe: Corn Chowder with Shrimp

by Deb Hall » Sun Jul 19, 2009 7:43 pm

This is the perfect weather for this dish- cool enough to enjoy a soup while the sweet corn is at it's peak. Any of you who were at the first Hotbytes throwdown- this was what I brought to impress a group of foodies. It's that good.

Chef Ellen at Science Hill deserves all the credit for the original recipe, I've just tweaked it a liittle to my personal taste.

Corn Chowder with Grilled Shrimp
Serves 6-8

3 Slices Applewood smoked (or other sweet smoked)Thick Bacon ( Note - see first instruction)
1 medium onion diced
1 Small green pepper, diced
1 Small red pepper, diced
1 Tbsp. fresh Thyme
3 Idaho Russet potatoes, peeled and diced.
5 Cups Chicken Stock
1 cup Heavy Cream
3 Cups corn kernels (6-8 ears)
Salt and Pepper
10-12 Shrimp, peeled and deveined

1. Sauté bacon until crisp and reserve.
2. Add onion and peppers to bacon grease and cook until soft. ( Note I always cook extra bacon in step one. You'll want about 3 Tablespoons bacon grease to saute the onions/peppers)
3. Add corn and potatoes, cover with stock and cook for 20 minutes
4. While soup cooks, cook shrimp by sauteing in a pan with a little grease for 2-3 minutes until pink. Once cool enough to handle, cut each shrimp into 3 bite-size pieces.
5. Add cream, salt, pepper, and thyme to soup.
6. Put shrimp in the bottom of each bowl, then ladle soup. Serve topped with chopped bacon.

Make sure to add a good amount of salt and fresh ground pepper, plus really good bacon to make it sing... :D

Michele,

You're welcome- Glad you all enjoyed it :D .

If you want to do something truly different for your next soup, you might want to try the Peach Tomato Soup recipe I posted last summer- my family still talks about that soup. :D Possibly not as good for a crowd as the presentation is part of the fun, but great to make for dinner or a couple of friends.

I will second that. I remember the day you posted that I had both peaches and tomatoes sitting on the counter. It really hit the spot after a long hot day.
The tall one wants white toast, dry, with nothin' on it.
And the short one wants four whole fried chickens, and a Coke.

A friend asked for a great Corn Chowder recipe, and I forwarded this- one of my favorites. I thought some of you who didn't see it in 2009 might be interested.

Enjoy!

Thanks for providing my digital recipe box, Robin! :wink: :D

Hey Deb do you think the recipe would suffer much if I used the small popcorn shrimp instead? I always seem to have it on hand.

Carla,
Provided they aren't breaded and you cook them til barely done , they should work just fine. I use mid size shrimp and cut into 3 pieces so you'd still get the chunky.
Use really good applewood smoked bacon if you can- it really amps up the flavor.
