I don’t know how the weather is where you live but we’re still getting cold weather here in Vermont. Recently I shared a wonderful recipe for pork, bean and kale soup. This recipe is a chowder. Sometimes you find a chowder recipe that is just so comforting you find yourself making it several times during the cold months. This shrimp and corn chowder is one of those recipes. The addition of the fennel gives it a slightly peppery taste but isn’t strong. Next time you’re in for some colder weather mix up a batch of this delicious shrimp and corn chowder. You probably have everything you might need on hand, use frozen corn and frozen shrimp that you might have in your freezer and you’ll be enjoying a nice bowl of this chowder in no time!Shrimp and corn chowder
