1 cup cubed carrots

1 (8-ounce) package sliced mushrooms, optional

1-2 stalks celery, chopped

4 cups chicken stock

4 cups cubed potatoes

2 pounds your favorite fresh white fish: cod, tilapia, haddock, catfish, scallops or combination of fish, diced into 1- inch cubes

1 teaspoon Old Bay or Seafood Seasoning or more to taste

Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Open clams and drain clam juice into bowl. Set aside clams. Mix together clam juice and flour until smooth and set aside.
  • In a large soup or stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion, garlic, carrots, mushrooms and celery in butter until onion and garlic are soft and translucent. Add chicken stock and potatoes and simmer for approximately ten minutes, or until potatoes are soft, but not mushy.
  • Add seafood and simmer another 10 minutes or so. Season to taste with Old Bay or seafood seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Stir clam juice and flour mixture into soup. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken soup. Remove from heat, and stir in milk and creamed corn. Return to heat and simmer on low for a minute or two. Ladle into soup bowls and top with a pat of butter, freshly ground black pepper and desired garnishes.

Serves 8-10.

Note: You can substitute half-and-half for the evaporated milk.

Note: If you are in a real hurry to get dinner on the table, parboil potatoes and carrots for a few minutes and then proceed with recipe.
