Clam Chowder Recipe

The Perfect Clam Chowder Recipe

Clam chowder is a thick, rich soup, ideal for either lunch or dinner. It is certainly satisfying enough to be a main dish rather than an appetizer. Lighter soups like consommé or bisque are better as appetizers. Chowders have a long history and the first ones were created so fishermen could cook their catch. Since catches vary, the chowder might have featured fish, seafood or a mixture of each. The fishermen would tip the catch of the day into a big pot and cook the fish. Clam chowder is always good, whether you make it with cream or swap the cream for tomatoes and make it Manhattan style.

Chowders to Showcase Your Clams

A good clam chowder should contain plenty of clams, since the point of making a chowder is to show off the seafood. Add some cream or milk, or tomatoes if you prefer that style, as well as other ingredients like bacon and onion. Chowders can be thickened with sea biscuits or broken-up crackers. Some contain potatoes or another kind of starch to act as a thickener. Herbs and spices might feature in your chowder, and it is best served hot, perhaps with crackers, croutons or bread, to add a contrasting crunch. Choose from a variety of excellent chowder recipes and make this hearty and satisfying dish.

Hello there, I'm Christine. Welcome to my blog where you will find a comprehensive collection of soup recipes for every season, occasion and palate. There are hundreds of soup recipes for you to try out, those which warm you up during the cooler months, and even chilled soups and dessert soups if you want to try something new.


Try making your next soup in the pressure cooker or crockpot, or prepare it in the conventional way. Choose from classics such as potato and leek soup, beef broth, French onion soup, or chicken noodle soup, or investigate a more unusual dish, like our cabbage bean soup or one of the Chinese soup recipes.


In addition to soups, broths and chowders, I have collected stew recipes, along with low-calorie, low-carb and heart-healthy options, so you can make soups which are nutritious and good for you, as well as fresh-tasting and delicious. Here at Amazing Soup Recipes, there are recipes for every taste, many of which are really quick and easy to make.
