Shrimp Corn Chowder
Recipe from 
Servings: 6
Prep Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 55 mins
  • 4    tablespoons   butter
  • 2    cups   chopped scallions, green tops only
  • 2    8 ounce packages  PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed
  • 1    tablespoon   seafood seasoning
  • 4    cups   shrimp stock or fish stock
  • 3    cups   half-and-half, warmed
  • 3    cups   diced red potatoes (1/4 inch), skin on
  • 2    pounds   large shrimp (see *)
  • 2    15 1/4ounce cans  no-salt-added corn, drained
  • 1    10 3/4ounce can  condensed cream of potato soup
IN a large stockpot, over medium-high heat, melt butter until it just begins to bubble. Now toss in the chopped scallions and continue cooking on medium-high heat until the scallions are wilted. Add both packages of cream cheese, blending with a wooden spoon until the cream cheese has melted completely. Now blend in the seafood seasoning.
POUR shrimp stock into the cream cheese mixture, blending together with a wire whisk until smooth. Blend in the warmed half-and-half. Allow the mixture to simmer, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until there is steam rising from the pot. Add the diced potatoes, keeping the heat on medium-high. Stir occasionally, allowing the potatoes to cook 25 min. or until fork-tender.
ONCE potatoes are tender, add the steamed shrimp (see Tip); stir. Add drained corn and cream of potato soup; stir until blended. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 min., stirring frequently with a wooden spoon so soup does not scorch.
*How to Steam Shrimp:
In a large stockpot, bring to a boil 2 cups of water, 2 Tbsp. white vinegar, 1/4 tsp. salt and 2 Tbsp. seafood seasoning. Once this mixture is boiling, stir in 2 lb. of fresh shrimp. Cover with lid and cook 2 to 3 min. or just until the shrimp turn pink. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp. Scoop shrimp from water with a slotted spoon; place on a tray to cool. Once cool, peel off shells and devein the shrimp. Cut each shrimp into thirds.
