Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups white onion, diced finely
  • 4 cups celery, diced finely
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups crab stock
  • 6 cups heavy cream
  • 6 cups whole corn kernels, off the cob
  • 6 cups Idaho potatoes, diced finely
  • 8 ounces crab knuckles, preferably stone crab
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and celery, and cook until translucent. Next, add the flour and stir well. Cook for 5 minutes. Do not allow the flour to brown, as this will change the color and thickness of the final product.

Add the crab stock and heavy cream, and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, add the corn and potatoes. Simmer until the potatoes are cooked through. Remove from heat and mix in the crab. (Do not add the crab if not serving immediately; instead add just before reheating the chowder and serving.)

Taste for seasoning, and add salt and pepper, if needed. Serve.

Crab Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.

Looking for a quick mid-week dinner? Seafood is a safe bet. It's quick to cook and simple recipes can get dinner on the table in 20 minutes.
