This time of year in Washington, I want hearty warm meals like soup, stew, and chowder. Some of my stew recipes simmer for hours to reduce and thicken, so I make a huge batch that I can freeze for a quick meal later. But sometimes I want something right away and don’t have any in the freezer. That’s when my seafood chowder steps up to the plate. This is such an easy seafood chowder recipe, and totally satisfies that heartiness craving.
