Creamy Shrimp Chowder

Creamy Shrimp Chowder is a rich, comforting meal for dinner or lunch.

Shrimp is one of our all time favorites and I love using it in as many as possible recipes. And let me tell you, Shrimp is used in anything from appetizers, snacks and main meals.

I am sure if you put this Chowder in a blender and blitz for a minute or two, you can really count it as a drink as well!

Rich, comforting Creamy Shrimp Chowder - perfect comfort food on a chilly day

This is the perfect Chowder to drive away any Winter chills. We are smack down into Summer right now in South-Africa. But I always crave a good soup or chowder after a nice long rain.

Which of course we have during Summer – together with some heavy thunderstorms – unlike some countries who have their rains and storms all mixed in with snow during Winter.

You should have most of the ingredients in your pantry, except maybe the Shrimp. Which can always be substituted with Chicken if you have no time to pop into the supermarket or your local seafood store.

It's been so cold here in Phoenix so we've been eating lots of soup - this looks like one I need to add to the lineup!

Wow, Linda, this sounds so creamy good! Pinned it to my Seafood Delight! board and yummed it too. I totally plan on making this for New Year's Eve. Sinea ♥

That sounds amazing! I love shrimp and pretty much any kind of seafood chowder. I love all of the white wine in here too, I'll bet it is delicious. We are having a cold sleety rain going on today, so this would be perfect!
