I wanted to serve a different dish from the usual seafood casserole so I played with the dish and came up with this.

  • Stir Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese into onion mixture until melted, about 2 minutes; stir in potatoes, cream-style corn, corn kernels, and cherry tomatoes. If soup is very thick, stir in water, about 1/2 cup at a time, as desired; bring soup to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Season with sea salt and pepper.

  • Stir drained clams, haddock, and shrimp into soup; simmer until haddock and shrimp are fully cooked for 5 minutes. Stir in lobster and its juice; cook just until heated through.

Cook's Notes:

Add enough water to thin chowder if needed. Bar clams and lobster can be purchased in bottles.

It was my first time making chowder and this recipe was good. I followed the recipe as written using the clams and shrimp only I had to substitute the haddock for sole and the lobster for fresh scallops. I will make this again. Read More

It's a good base of the recipe but I would definitely change some things when making it again. The corn was just overpowering and too weirdly sweet for it, it tasted more like a corn chowder than a seafood chowder. So I would probably just chop up some carrots and celery next time. I would also add more potato to the mixture and not add the dairy until much closer to the end. But it's not a bad recipe and a good base to jump off and customize to your own taste. Read More

Often times I surf the web looking for ingredients for newly created recipes and of course check out all recipes (that’s a given for me).I saw your recipe online and decided to adopt from it. I wanted to make a medley of seafood items in a dish very much like yours. I love your ingredients and from that I made a few changes and here’s what I did.Instead of using water I exchanged that for chicken broth and whole milk instead of half-and-half.I upped the butter to one cup. In my sauté I chopped celery, green onions and white onions. I added. Oyster sauce, and plenty of obey seasoning. I omitted the tomatoes. Of course the corn and potatoes.I included cod fish, salmon, shrimp, scallops, oysters, clams, and squid I wanted but I didn’t have any on hand. In conclusion my dish was scrumptious. Thank you for helping me through your recipe in creating a dish of seafood medley. Kevin, Washington DC Read More

It couldn't find bar clams, so used clam juice and a can of clams. Used prechopped seafood chowder mix (fresh). Added 2 cloves garlic and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and extra herbs and lots of fresh ground black pepper. Read More

Excellent! I used 4 fresh Jumbo Tanner Crab legs instead of lobster and bar clams. I also added a little Old Bay Seasoning and Paprika to make it more like a Cajun seafood chowder minus the cayenne. I will make this again.. Read More

I'm making this again as it is delicious. This is a favorite of my son so I'm making extra and will take him enough for left overs. I usually only include shrimp lobster and clam but may try a different combination this time. THANKS for a great recipe. Read More
