While we were at Sliding House this summer, we came across a cookbook called "Dutch Oven Cookbook". It's not about cooking in a Dutch or French oven (but why not!), it contains passed down recipes from locals living in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and feels very much like a handwritten book that your grandmother would give you. Awesome, right? With all the fresh fish available around us, we chose to make a beautiful seafood chowder from the book, but of course adapting and putting our twist on it.
Yes, yes... I know. Why would I make a seafood chowder when I don't really like fish? Have you seen how happy Scott gets with seafood? Remember my post with Maya + Scott enjoying a lobster dinner together? That's \ why. Watching them work and eat together is so rewarding!
We changed up the recipe a bit and added J.R. Watkins Seafood Seasoning, scallops and clams. Scott isn't big on strong flavors and he loved this combination! It has just the right mix of salt and seasonings that brighten the dish and gives the cream base a finishing touch. I remember the sun starting to set (they ate late that night) and Scott sitting down with Maya for a cozy bowl of Dutch Seafood Chowder. Hope you enjoy it too!
