Winter is the perfect time to enjoy warm and comforting seafood dishes. If you're looking for a delicious recipe to try this winter, look no further than this classic seafood chowder.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups fish stock or chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound fish fillets (such as cod, haddock, or halibut)
  • 1 pound shellfish (such as shrimp, scallops, or clams)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the flour is lightly toasted.
  3. Gradually stir in the fish stock or chicken broth, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Add the heavy cream, thyme, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt.
  4. Cut the fish fillets into bite-size pieces and add them to the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the fish is just cooked through.
  5. Add the shellfish to the pot and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until they are just cooked through.
  6. Ladle the chowder into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve hot, with crusty bread or crackers on the side.

This seafood chowder is a hearty and comforting dish that is perfect for a cold winter evening. The combination of fish and shellfish in a creamy broth makes for a delicious and satisfying meal.

The use of fish stock or chicken broth will add a rich and complex flavor to the chowder and the use of different types of fish and shellfish provides a variety of texture and taste. The chowder is also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. The addition of cayenne pepper and black pepper will add a nice kick of heat to the chowder.

This recipe is versatile and you can adjust the amount of cream or the types of fish and shellfish to your liking.

Bon Appetit!
