Shrimp Chowder (serves 2) or 4-6 for an appetizer

This is very rich and ridiculously tasty. Special occasion meal!!

1 small potato peeled, and cut into small chunks

1/2 onion, diced

2 T. butter, plus 1 T.

1 can evaporated milk

1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1 c. raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined

1 c. water

seasoned salt


red pepper flakes

Saute onion in 2 T butter till tender and starts to carmelize. This will take 10 or so minutes on low-med heat. Add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes. Add water and shrimp cut into chunks. Cook just till not translucent anymore. (this happens very fast) Pour into a bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, cook potatos till tender in microwave. (in a bowl, just covered with water, 3-5 minutes).

In the same pan you used before, melt 1 T. butter. Add 1 T. flour to make a roux. Stir and add milk, whisking to get rid of the lumps. Stir till thickened and add drained potatoes and seasonings to taste. Add the shrimp mixture and stir till very warm. Remove from heat and add cheese. Stir till melted. Serve with hot bread.
