  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, place the vegetable oil, onion, carrots and celery. Slowly cook and stir 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Mix in the bacon, potato, clam juice, tomatoes, tomato sauce, white pepper, seasoning salt, parsley, marjoram, garlic powder, thyme, mustard, Cajun seasoning and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat and simmer until the potato is tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Mix in the clams and shrimp. Cook approximately 5 minutes more and serve.

I made this last night and I think it turned out great. There are some changes, however, that I made. First,I would saute the celery by itself for about 4 minutes before adding any other veg...

The recipe needs more clams and I think more bacon. I will try it again though with these additions.

Made this for my soup loving pregnant wife and she loved it.

Very different from your ordinarry clam chowder - spicy and good.

Alot of work chopping all the ingredients and all the spices, but well worth it. Like a good chili, it tastes best the next day when all the flavors have blended together. I used fresh already...

This was so delicious!! I made it without the bacon, to save some fat from the recipe and because I don't eat meat, and the flavor was still wonderful! I also added a few shrimp that i had that ...

Nobody liked this.

Maybe a little too hot. Reduce ground Pepper

Excellent seafood soup. Even better than the one I had on Isla Mujeres. My kids and husband loved it.
