Simple Lobster Chowder

Every time I have made this lobster chowder I get compliments.  Everyone loves it.  My son even asked me for the recipe so I decided to put it into my blog.  When I first made the chowder, I just couldn’t believe how simple it was but also how tasty it was.  When I got the thumbs up from my granddaughter I knew I had a winner.  She is my food critic. Seriously, if you like creamed corn, you’ll love this.  If you don’t like lobster then add shrimp or scallops.  Hey, for that matter omit the seafood and add some cooked chicken OR if you don’t like creamed corn, just add regular corn.  Make it to suit your own taste. Soup - Lobster Chowder - Ham and Bean 005In 2-3 tablespoons of butter fry one chopped onion.  Then grate 1 clove of garlic into this.  Fry for a minute or so and add 1 cup of boiling water.  Why boiling?  That’s so the cooking process will not stop because you have added cold water. Soup - Lobster Chowder - Ham and Bean 007 Next add 2 cubed potatoes, 1/4 cup chopped parsley, 1/4 cup dill, salt and pepper and even some paprika.  Just a sprinkle.  Then add 2 smaller cans of creamed corn and cook until the potatoes are soft.  Always checking and mixing this so it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Soup - Lobster Chowder - Ham and Bean 008Pour in 3 cups of milk. Heat.
