According to the calendar, there are still a couple more weeks of winter. Just enough time for me to share this Shrimp and Corn Chowder recipe before everyone starts craving the lighter dishes that are common during spring. So as the last of the cold winter wind and rain patter at your window, cook up a pot of this soup full of all kinds of yumminess like shrimp, bacon, potato and corn.
For the longest time I did not like corn. I did not like corn on the cob, I did not like corn as a side dish and I certainly did not like corn in my chowder. But the older I got the more I opened up to it. I eased my way into corn on the cob and I started cooking corn more often as our vegetable side dish. However, it was not until this dish that I actually tried it in chowder and you know what, it’s pretty good. The sweetness of the corn compliments the sweetness of the shrimp and the kick from the cajun seasoning very nicely. Now if I could just work my way up to corn chowder.

This recipe sounds wonderful. My girlfriend loves corn and shrimp more than ME. What’s wrong with this picture? While I have prepare a gourmet meal for her, I think this would bring her great happiness.

I made the soup and it is phenomenal! I love the way the corn crunches delicately in your mouth! Yum! Unfortunately, I think I put 2 TBS in the soup instead of 2 tsps and had to add chicken broth to cool it down a bit. I will definately be making this again. Thanks for sharing :)

Oh this chowder looks great! Especially for a day like this… It’s been cold and rainy here in Sacramento and a bowl of this soup would make me so warm. :)
