Mixed Seafood Corn Chowder


I was planning to make a recipe from Katie Lee's cookbook, The Comfort Table. It was Scallop Corn Chowder but I was too lazy to go get fresh scallops. I went to Trader Joe's (love that place) and found a package of what is called Seafood Medley in the frozen section. I was not hopeful about the frozen seafood in the soup, but my hopes rose upon tasting it. It was truly good soup and the seafood mix perfect. I made a few other adjustments to the recipe as well.

What you will need

3 fresh ears corn on the cob

2 tablespoons butter

1 small onion, chopped

1 large carrot, diced

1 tablespoon flour

1 cup cooked ham or turkey ham, cubed

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon onion salt (if you don't have this just add additional salt)

1 14 ounce can chicken broth

3/4 cup half and half

1 cup milk

1 pound Seafood Medley Frozen Mix (at Trader Joe's), thawed and rinsed
