  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. Twelve 1/2-inch-thick slices Italian or French bread
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 2 garlic cloves, 1 halved and 1 minced
  4. 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  5. 2 slices bacon, finely diced
  6. 1 cup corn kernels
  7. 2 large scallions, thinly sliced crosswise
  8. Scant 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  9. 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  10. 1 1/2 cups bottled clam juice (12 ounces)
  11. 1 1/2 cups water
  12. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  13. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  14. 1 1/4 pounds shelled and deveined large shrimp, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
  15. 1 tablespoon dry vermouth (optional)
  1. Preheat the broiler. Brush both sides of the bread with the olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet. Broil the bread slices about 10 inches from the heat for about 3 minutes, until golden on both sides. Rub the croutons with the halved garlic clove.
  2. Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan. Add the bacon and cook over moderately high heat until browned, about 4 minutes. Add the minced garlic, corn, scallions and crushed red pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring frequently, until the corn is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute, until everything is coated. Add the clam juice, water and heavy cream and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and simmer until just pink and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the vermouth.
  4. Put the croutons in deep bowls, spoon the shrimp and corn chowder on top and serve.
