I love this dish specially the seafood chowder, we usually make them once in a while, it combines two of the elements I love in a dish, something creamy and with tons of seafood.


  • 1 kg mussels, shell on
  • 200 g shrimps, shelled and deveined
  • 200 g squid, sliced
  • 200 g fleshy fish, cubed (I used a mix of ling fish and salmon in this recipe)
  • 150 g scallops
  • 150 g lobster tail meat, cubed
  • 3 large potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced

  1. In a pot, bring to a boil 1 litre seafood stock together with the mussels. Once the mussels are opened, turn the heat off.
  2. Remove mussels from the pot, let it cool down then separate mussels from the shells and set aside.
  3. In a separate pot add the bacon and butter together, cook until golden brown then add and sauté the onions and celery.
