This recipe is AMAZING! I was always threatened by the daunting task of making chowders as I have heard numerous times that it was tough to master a good chowder. Anyway, I found this recipe to be :
- Very flavourful
- Very colourful ( the celery leaves and stalks make a good contrast to the pink in the shrimp, against the white creamy sauce )
- Very easy to make!
However, I did change some few things to suit it to my taste:
- I did not add the entire package of cream cheese. I thought it was too much to do that. I added a bit more milk though.
- Instead of the cream cheese, I added 2 low-heaped tablespoons of sifted flour, as I was stirring the soup. This thickened up the chowder quite quickly without the fat that you find in the cream cheese.
- I also added a sage, thyme, dill dry herb mix ( around 3/4 tsps ) to give it that underlying flavour that goes so well with seafood chowders.
