Roasted Corn Bacon and Shrimp Chowder

Soup. How do I love thee....

I was hopping around visiting some of my favorite blogs the other day and I ran across a fantastic corn chowder over at Teresa's delicious blog and I knew I just had to give it a whirl. My daughter took one look and agreed wholeheartedly.

I decided to roast my corn and I tossed in a few potatoes as well. I also garnished my chowder with some roasted red peppers and scallions. I love the way this chowder came out and will most definitely be making it again soon. Thanks for the inspiration, Teresa! :)

3 cups fresh corn
2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp olive oil
4 pieces of bacon, chopped
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
32 oz box chicken stock
2 tbsp butter
4 cups peeled diced potatoes
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 lb deveined shrimp
2 cups half and half or cream
salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Garnish
roasted red pepper, diced
scallions, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 425. Toss corn in 2 tbsp olive oil and spread on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment. Roast for about 15 minutes or until it begins to brown.

In a Dutch oven or heavy pot, saute the bacon and onion until bacon is crisp. Add the chicken stock, butter, corn, potatoes and herbs. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender. Remove 1/2 of chowder and place in a blender. Blend with center of lid removed, placing a paper towel over hole to avoid hot liquid splatter. Return blended chowder to pot. Add the shrimp, half and half, salt and cracked pepper. Simmer another 5-7 minutes until shrimp is cooked through.

Garnish with roasted pepper and scallions.

Have a fantastic week!

I too remember this chowder from Teresa's site and how wonderful it looked. It's so nice to hear that your daughter likes shrimp and wanted you to make this. I wish I could get my daughter to be a little more "wide open" about what she ate. Looks delicious!

I just wanted to say I have been a long time follower and I appreciate all of your writing. A lot of work must go into putting out quality content like this. Thanks again.

gluten said...

Terrific Site! I had a terrible time trying to diagnose what was wrong with me. Terrible cramps and pains from eating just one little bite of gluten. Once I found all the hidden traces of gluten in my diet things changed dramatically for the better! I've found some very weird foods along the way that contain gluten like vinegar and medicine? It wasn't easy but it was fun trying out all the new ingredients with new gluten free recipes.

gluten said...

Thanks for posting this well written article. I am writing a paper for school and I did a lot of searching and found your points to be some of the best. I appreciate you taking the time to write this.

Dearest sweet Kim, so happy to be visiting you here again. This Chowder looks so yummie!! I hope all is good and everything is well for you. Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!

Lola said...

This is a brilliant idea. I think a lot of us have trouble staying off the internet at times. I think that I am going to add a tech free day to my schedule. Thank you for sharing your experience.
