During the winter months we eat a lot of soup and chowder. Nothing tastes better on a cold day than sitting down to some warm comfort food. I have shared recipes for Corn and Shrimp Chowder before. I love shrimp and using it in chowder is top of my list. This recipe is a little bit healthier for you and the addition of paprika gives the chowder a slight smoky taste. Next time your looking for chowder to make try this Smokey Corn and Shrimp Chowder.Smokey Corn

I can tell you that I’m ready to jump into my screen to get to that soup. Sunny Florida isn’t sunny nor is it warm. I’m wanting something hot and comforting and that soup fits the bill. Gulf shrimp is delicious and we always have smoked paprika on hand. YUMMY!!
