New England Clam Chowder Served in a Bread Bowl


Ingredients:
1kg fresh clams in shells (scrub shells thoroughly)
6 strips of bacon
2 tablespoon butter
2 sticks of celery diced
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
2 tablespoons flour
3 cups of stock from the clams
500g potatoes
1 teaspoon fresh thyme or dried
1 bay leaf
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
2 cups fresh cream

4 large bread bowls make sure the bread is fresh (sour dough bread is best). It should have a nice crust on the outside. Slice the top off the bread bowl and scoop out the inside making sure you don’t pierce the crust. You can dice and fry the scooped out bread and use croutons with the soup if desired.

Method:
1. In a large sauce pan bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add clams and cover the pot. Cook over medium high heat for 7-9 minutes until they open. If any clams don’t open, discard. Remove clams from stock. Strain the stock through a fine sieve lined with cheese cloth. If needed strain a few times to remove all traces of sand.

2. Remove the clams from the shells. With a sharp knife, cut meat in to bite size pieces.

3. In a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat, cook the bacon until brown in the butter.

4. Add celery, onions, garlic and the potatoes and cook for about ten minutes or until onions are translucent. Stir often. Add flour and cook for another minute stirring constantly.

5. Add 3 cups of the broth, thyme and bay leaf and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes.

6. Once potatoes are tender, remove the pot from the heat, discard bay leaf and add chopped clams (If you are making this ahead of time, do not add the clams until you are ready to heat and serve).

7. Season chowder with pepper and salt as needed and serve in the scooped out bread bowls.

The Chowder should be thick. If it is not thick enough melt butter some butter with some flour to make a roux and slowly stir in to chowder until you reach the desired consistency.

Clam chowder is any of several chowder soups containing clams and broth. In addition to clams, common ingredients include diced potatoes, onions, and celery.

Easy to make, ready in less than half an hour, a great dinner standby.

Ingredients
serves 2 people

8 medium size fresh prawns
3 small calamari
500 g of clams
3 coriander bunches
2 garlic cloves
7 cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp of olive oil

Aromatic squid ink is used to color this pasta and give it a silky black hue. But while it may smell strong, the resulting noodles are relatively neutral in flavor. It’s traditional to pair them with seafood, but they’ll taste good with any sauce or added ingredients that play well with a subtle hint of brininess.

When choosing seafood for a pasta dish, bigger is not always better. Choose a medium, bite-size shrimp, small calamari and fresh clams.

Using dried squid ink spaghetti combined with prawns, calamari, clams, cherry tomatoes, coriander and splash of white wine for an outstanding pasta dish.
