I don't use celrey seed or fennel seed, instead I season with 1/3 cup sherry, thyme, salt and pepper....then thicken with cornstarch...I also used 1/4 c butter and half and half...this is an amazing recipie!
I used all of the leftovers from our crab boil. It was delicious and so quick and easy, because the crab, shrimp and potatoes were already cooked and I threw in all of the leftover sausage too! Delicious!
I was skeptical that I could recreate a dish worthy of the over 2,000 five star ratings, but alas, here we are. This was made with Christmas Day leftover king crab leg meat, but everything else remained the same. Absolutely delicious and is definitely going into our rotation, especially during the cold winter months!!
Amazing recipe. I halved the amount of cream and only put in one tablespoon of butter and it came out perfectly. I also garnished with saffron and fresh dill.
Whole milk is always best in "cream" soups. Too much fat dulls the taste buds.
The best chowder ever! Depth of flavor is amazing, always a hit!
