Ha-ha!!! I thought you'd like this one.
Thanks, everyone! You really do owe it to yourself (and your family/friends) to try this. Just remember, there are a ton of extra personal touches you can put into this dish...just use what you like and it will be great eats.
If you prefer a stove-top/dutch oven method without smoke, I posted that in the DO forum.
Enjoy! We sure did!
yeah, this is, for the most part, a base recipe. It would be great wih any seafood, with or without the sausage. The sausage does add a bit of salt and that pork flavor and chew. Add some celery, scallions, chives, pieces of lobster, crab, clam, maybe some firm-fleshed finned fish (don't know which would be best), whole oysters, whole scallops, or whatever else you're into. If you wanted to move away from the emphasis of the corn chowder to more of a seafood chowder, omit the corn, add additional potatoes, and take up the rest of the volume with seafood. That would make for a very rich and delicious dish, indeed.
I would consider some additional seasonings if alot of seafood is used, especially with some of the stronger flavored items which may not sit the best among milder flavored items...hmm, I'd have to think it over for a minute, but parsley would definitely come to mind, a bit of thyme, possibly rosemary...just thinking of the basics here, and keeping the flavor simple...oh, crumbled bacon...don't forget the bacon! Ha-ha-ha!
With a little imagination, you can take chowders to soaring heights regarding flavors, varying textures and colors, so, have fun with it!
