Recipes I’ve Made: Shrimp and Corn Chowder
Hey, folks! As some of you might know, I’m a bit of a foodie. I’m obsessed with Pinterest and often search for recipes there. I’ve had some hits and misses, but I’ve decided that any time I try a new recipe, I’ll share my results here for anyone else who might be looking for ways to switch it up in the kitchen. 🙂 I’ll also share some of my favorite Pinterest discoveries that have become regulars at our dining table.
This past week, my husband texted me from work to say he wasn’t feeling well. I’d found this recipe for Shrimp and Corn Chowder and decided to give it a whirl.
Difficulty level: Easy
Time from start to finish: 40-45 min (approx)
The recipe says you can use frozen, canned or roasted corn. When I made it, I used frozen. I also used about 3/4 of an onion instead of a full one because I don’t really enjoy it when the onion taste overpowers everything else. Here is a pic of how mine came out:
My result was a bit thinner than I anticipated based on the pictures from the original recipe, but it was really tasty! Sweet, creamy, smokey, and the shrimp were the perfect add-in. The recipe calls for them to be cooked in the bacon grease after you finish the bacon, so it’s not really low-calorie, but if you wanted to lighten it up, you could always oven-roast the shrimp with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and you could also use a lower-fat or a turkey bacon (or leave that out altogether).
If you try it, let me know how you like it! My husband was a fan and said he would definitely be happy with me making it again sometime. 🙂
