Tomato Seafood Chowder Recipe

Before we get started, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand:
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon regular olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 14 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine (or extra chicken broth)
  • 12-16 ounces Key West pink shrimp
  • 6 oz crab meat
  • pinch of parsley
  • pinch of basil
  • pinch of oregano
  • pinch of black pepper
  • a few ginger shavings
  • chopped red Chile pepper, if you like it spicy
  • scallions for garnish, if desired
Got your ingredients? Let’s start simmering this soup to perfection:
  1. Add the olive oil to a Dutch oven to saute the green bell pepper until slightly soft. Add the garlic and simmer until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  2. Add the tomatoes and tomato sauce, chicken broth, wine, spices, and red Chile pepper. Stir until well mixed.
  3. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes. This allows all those amazing flavors to harmonize.
  4. Add the shrimp and crab meat, then cover and simmer again for about 5-7 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink.
This meal is simple enough for a weeknight, yet delicious enough for weekend company. You can’t go wrong!
