Serves 4 (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)
PRINT RECIPE

4 center-cut bacon slices, chopped
4 green onions (I used 1/2 of a medium yellow onion and sprinkled chopped chives on top of serving bowl)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
4 garlic cloves, minced
1.1 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/4 cup)
2 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1 1/4 cups unsalted chicken stock
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (I substituted sriracha)
24 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 pound)
1 (10-ounce) package frozen corn kernels, thawed (I used canned corn)

Preparation

1. Cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat 6 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving drippings.

2. Thinly slice green onions; reserve 2 tablespoons dark green parts. Add white and light green onion parts, thyme, and garlic to drippings in pan; sauté 2 minutes. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Sprinkle over onion mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk, stock, and bay leaf; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in salt, black pepper, red pepper, shrimp, and corn; simmer 4 minutes or until shrimp are done. Discard bay leaf. Divide soup evenly among 4 bowls; sprinkle with bacon and reserved 2 tablespoons green onions.

This soup sounds like it would be one I would smile real big, if a bowl of it was set down in front of me. Yes, I must make this one. You continually impress me with your cooking and baking skills!

I love shrimp and I love chowder so this looks ...great! It's starting to cool down a bit in Phoenix. Not like up north but I appreciate the days of low 80's and we start making soup!

Blessings and love,
Debbie
