What is chowder?
So what makes a soup a soup?
A soup is a type of soup that most of the time (not always) has a creamy base and is thick in texture. There are some variations of chowder: clam chowder, corn chowder, and of course, this seafood soup!
I started simmering the vegetables in seafood broth to get a great flavor and then add the seafood and the cream to cook at the end. Powders can sometimes be thickened with a roux and, in the case of this seafood soup recipe, potatoes also provide quite a bit of starch to help thicken it!
A large spoonful of seafood soup, a delicious one-night meal!
Seafood soup is a complete meal loaded with shrimp, scallops and fish. We add a side of Easy Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits or Cheddar Bay Biscuit to absorb any of the creamy benefits from the bottom of the bowl.
When I make a recipe for seafood soup, I always add corn for a color and a touch of sweetness. If you have additional vegetables that you need to use, this dish is perfect for them! Mushrooms, peppers or peas are excellent additions to this soup!
