Have you ever just wanted to re-create a recipe of a dish you had at a restaurant. The other night I ate at Bahama Breeze Restaurant and tasted a friend of mines Seafood Chowder, that she ordered. It was full of flavor and full of seafood.
It was quite delicious! I started thinking to myself hmmmmmm….“I wonder if I could re-create this yummy chowder?”
I started dissecting the chowder right there at the dinner table… my friends started laughing at me.
That’s when I decided I was going to make a go at Seafood Chowder, it would have shrimp, scallops, and a whole bunch of other yummy stuff…. It was delicious by the way!
The seafood that I chopped up for this delicious chowder was conch meat, shrimp, and scallops.
Place the oil in a pot and heat until very hot. Add the conch meat and sear for 1 to 2 minutes, then the chopped garlic.
Add the chopped onions, celery, carrots, and potatoes; sauté for 5 minutes.
Add all the remaining ingredients (chopped tomatoes,tomato paste, thyme, and oregano), mix well.
Add all the clam juice and chicken broth, bring to a boil. Simmer until the potatoes are tender.
Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve hot with croutons or crackers. I topped it off with flour breaded shrimps and basil leaf.
