Shrimp Corn Chowder

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

I love this super simple Shrimp Corn Chowder, it is very easy and not short on flavor. This recipe was adapted from one we had saved from a magazine called Simple Food about 8 years ago... because then again, who cuts out recipes anymore? ;)

The recipe I am posting below serves 4 people, however I suggest always doubling soup recipes!

I hope you enjoy!


3 tbsp unsalted butter

2 leeks (white and green parts chopped)

1 fennel bulb, chopped

Salt & Pepper to taste

2 tbsp whole wheat flour

1 8-ounce bottle of clam juice

3 cups whole milk

1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 pound raw shrimp-- peeled & deveined ( Whole Foods had the shrimp that were peeled and deveined, but had the tails on still for sale, so we went with those!) I really recommend fresh not frozen

1 clove garlic minced

1/4 onion chopped

1 10- ounce package frozen corn

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice


1: Heat 1 tbsp butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat

2: Place minced garlic and chopped onion and saute in the butter for 2 minutes

3: Next place the shrimp deveined and peeled with no tails in the sauce pan. Cook until both sides are opaque, usually 3 to 5 minutes per side, and then place in a bowl and set aside

4: Heat the rest of the butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the leeks and fennel, season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes

5: Then stir in the flour

6: Add the clam juice, milk and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 12 minutes

7: Finally stir in the shrimp and corn and cook until the potatoes are tender and the shrimp and corn are heated through, 3 to 5 minute. 8: Stir in parsley and lemon juice and serve right away!
