This Paleo seafood chowder recipe is super easy, loaded with flavor, and a hit with my family (none of whom practice Paleo).
Last summer, my friend Barb brought a huge pot of this paelo seafood chowder to the lake for our families to enjoy. It was such a hit, that I got the recipe from her immediately.
I was a bit afraid that the coconut oil would be obvious or overpowering in this soup, but it wasn’t. Although I could detect a hint of it, it wasn’t at all off-putting. The saltiness of the bacon and the added salt in the broth and seasoning gave perfect balance to the sweet coconut flavor.
Cook’s Note: market quality bacon makes a nice difference in the flavor and of this soup. I buy applewood smoked from The Fresh Market. It is expensive but amazingly good.
Once this chowder is cooked, it can be kept in a slow cooker on warm. It will stay ready to eat but won’t continue cooking (which would make the seafood tough).
I’d love to hear back from those of you who try this, so feel free to leave comments. Thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!
