“Can't believe I made this all on my own. I was inspired by other fish chowder and stew recipes. It was so good it surprised me! My family went back for seconds. I wanted the soup to be chunky, so I made sure water didn't rise above the levels of the other ingredients. It was the perfect meal to break my fast with, and my family. (It's Ramadan! hehe) Ramadan Kareem! Peace be upon you.”

Directions

  1. Mix lemon juice, basil, 1 tablespoon onion powder, and salt in a large bowl; toss the shrimp, grouper, and tilapia in the marinade. Remove fish fillets and allow shrimp to continue to marinate.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over high heat and cook grouper and tilapia fillets just until outsides are white, about 3 minutes. Remove fish with a slotted spoon. Cook and stir shrimp in the same skillet until firm and white on the outside, 3 to 5 minutes, sprinkling shrimp with black pepper and 1 more tablespoon onion powder as they cook.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large soup pot; cook and stir onion and garlic until onion is translucent and beginning to brown, about 8 minutes.
  4. Transfer shrimp to the soup pot and mix in potatoes, carrots, zucchinis, sweet corn, and cilantro. Stir in water to cover and bring soup to a boil; simmer over medium-low heat until potatoes and carrots are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir in skim milk and coconut cream. Gently mix in grouper and tilapia fillets, bring chowder to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Simmer chowder until fish are no longer translucent and break apart into chunks, about 10 more minutes.
  5. For a thicker chowder, scoop up about 1/2 cup of soup into a small bowl and whisk whole wheat flour into liquid until smooth. Stir the flour mixture into chowder and let simmer until thickened, about 5 more minutes.

This is a very easy & tasty chowder. I used extra large shrimp & pollock for the white fish. Instead of adding water I substituted sodium reduced chicken broth. The chowder is so chunky you don't need to thicken it, if at all. Great job Maddie

Our family did not like this recipe. I was so excited when I read the ingredients....what's not to like about bacon?? Alas, all we could taste was the crushed peppers, very watery (not what I would consider as a chowder).
