This Lobster Corn Chowder is a decadent and delicious soup! It’s so easy to make you can have it on your table in about one and half hours.
If you love seafood chowders then you’ll love this Lobster Corn Chowder! This soup is creamy, rich and so flavourful with the taste of sweet lobster, corn, bacon, cream and a touch of wine.
I love seafood. In any form, but especially chowders! One of my most favourite food memories, is of eating an amazing seafood chowder in Nova Scotia when I was a teenager on vacation with my family. I remember eating this creamy bowl of amazingness while staring off into the Atlantic Ocean. Dreamy.
Since that time I haven’t really had chowder (none very good anyway). I live smack dab in the middle of the prairies, so there’s not much seafood to be found around these parts. (though we are famous for our beef!) But as luck would have it, a package of frozen lobster meat ended up in my freezer recently. I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I mean lobster is like gold, you can’t just use it in anything…these things have to be thought out properly. It’s lobster. Must treat it royally.
Lobster Corn Chowder is so easy to make!
So I decided to make a creamy Lobster Corn Chowder. This soup is creamy, hearty, rich and full of lobster goodness. And don’t be fooled…this dish is NOT hard to make at all. In fact, if you work efficiently, you could have it on your table in an hour…1 and 1/2 tops.
Make it a Meal
Serve this soup with some crusty bread and a green salad. Garnish with sliced green onion or chives and it looks like a dish in a fancy restaurant! Except that I forgot to sprinkle on the green onion for the photos…it really looks so much nicer with chives…sigh…oh well. Enjoy!
Mmmmmmm And remember, lobster isn’t just for fancy restaurants! 😉
Lobster Corn Chowder Recipe Tips
- Lobster: Use cooked lobster. Frozen cooked lobster pieces from the grocery store are a great option, just let it thaw before adding to the recipe.
- Corn: You can use fresh or frozen corn kernels. If you have leftover cobs of corn, you can cut the corn off and use that too.
- Wine: Use a good dry wine, one that you would drink. Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc are good options.
- What is cream sherry? It’s a sweet sherry that can be used in cooking. You can use dry sherry too, but it won’t add any sweetness to the chowder.
- Garnish: We like a garnish of crisp bacon at serving time, or you can add it directly to the soup at the same time you add the potato/corn mix. We prefer to add it to the soup and let it simmer with the rest of the ingredients. We like the extra flavour it adds to the soup.
