  • Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir leeks into the butter and season with salt and black pepper; cook and stir until the leeks are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Stir flour into the leek mixture until dissolved completely and the mixture begins to thicken; add half-and-half, potatoes, and clam juice. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Stir shrimp and corn into the potato mixture; continue cooking until the potatoes are completely tender, about 10 minutes more. Remove pot from heat, add lemon juice and chives, and stir.

Cook's Notes:

For a lighter version, replace half-and-half with skim milk.

This is also good with shredded cheese on top as a garnish.

This was a really good base recipe. It can be tweaked based on what you have on hand. I added in some celery carrots and Andouille sausage and a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning. I only used about 5 nice sized potatoes a pound seemed like a lot and 1 bag of corn. It was so rich creamy and flavorful! Read More

I just finish preparing this dish as is. I accidentally bought frozen sweet corn in a butter sauce. I have to say even with the sweet corn and butter sauce the dish was very tasty. Read More

This was really good! I decided to make this last minute and did not have any leeks clam juice or frozen corn so I added some onion powder chicken broth and a can of sweet corn in their place. I also added some old bay seasoning for some extra flavor. Read More
