It’s St Patrick’s Day. A day of fun and cheer, and of course for some green beer. This month as a Life Made Delicious blogger one of the themes was green. I wanted to make an authentic Irish dish. Fisherman’s pie or Irish Seafood Chowder? I went with the chowder. I have to say it’s probably the best one I ever made.
I started with Olive oil, onions, zucchini, celery, and carrots. Sautéed until soft.I put those aside.
Next was the mussels & shrimp. I cooked them until I had a nice broth, added a little wine as well. I then added scallops and filet of sole.
Once those cooked together in another pot I put back the vegetables to cook and added potatoes.
I added 2 cups of milk, using lactose free as my oldest daughter is intolerant. I then added the seafood, mixed it all together letting it simmer. Then I added fresh chopped spinach.
I also pureed some spinach in my vitamix which made the chowder green. Perfect and delicious for St Patrick’s day.
Definitely a recipe I would make again.
Hope your St Patty’s day was full of cheer.
Stay positive and pampered. Sláinte!
