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!

Enjoy!!! :-)

 

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.
