Scallop and Shrimp Chowder

on January 18, 2015

Winter is soup and stew weather. This scallop & shrimp chowder is delicious and warming, plus studies indicate that scallops help reduce weight, probably due to the extra taurine.

1 tbsp Bacon Grease drippings
3 tbsp Butter
1 cup Heavy Cream
1-2 cups water or chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp Pepper, White
8 oz Bay Scallops-raw
6 oz shrimp
1 slices Uncured Bacon
1 stalk scallion(s)
1/2 tbsp Parsley, fresh or dried

Fry bacon until crisp in a stew pot; remove bacon; add butter. Sauté celery for a minute or two in the fat, then add scallops and shrimp (I use frozen tails on shrimp), pepper, salt, (plus 1 tsp of Old Bay seasoning if you can get it), and add broth. Reduce heat to simmer, then add cream. Heat through, then add parsley. Top serving with chopped scallions and crumbled bacon.
