Seafood Chowder

Creamy seafood chowder! Is that even low carb? Yes! Approximately 12 grams total carbs (more or less) for the entire creamy seafood-y goodness. And its good for 2.

Last week at work, they served seafood chowder made with surimi & creamy seafood soup mix. I couldn’t help it, I ate maybe 2 tablespoons…ok 4 (😅). Sooo hard! Anyway, I decided to make one that we can indulge in without guilt. And here it is..

Ingredients

250 grams frozen marinara mix
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables (50 grams)
1/2 of a fish broth cube (chicken or vegetable broth will also do)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chopped parsley to garnish

Procedure

Thaw out marinara mix in the fridge overnight or if in a hurry just defrost in microwave for 5 minutes. Set aside.

Heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion until soft. Add the marinara mix, frozen mixed vegetables and the fish broth cube. Stir and allow to cook for 3 minutes.

Pour in milk, curry powder and fish sauce. Stir well and allow to boil. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes. (Although fish sauce is optional, I highly recommend adding it as it adds umami or savory taste.)

Add in cream then season with salt and pepper. Let it simmer again for 5 minutes or until cooked.

Pour in bowls. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve warm.

Good for 2-3 persons.
