Danielle's Seafood Chowder


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

8 servings


  • cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 onion, minced

  • cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 quart half-and-half, or as needed

  • 2 cups bar clams, drained with juice reserved

  • cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

  • 2 potatoes, cubed

  • 2 cups cream-style corn

  • 1 large ear corn, kernels cut from the cob

  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes

  • 1 ½ cups water, or as needed

  • sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 fresh haddock fillet, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 cups large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1 cup canned lobster meat, with juice


  1. Melt butter with olive oil in a large pot over medium-low heat; stir in onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Whisk flour into butter mixture; whisk in half-and-half and juice from drained clams.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
