Seafood Chowder by Tom's Mother, Dee

Hi Tom,
Try this some time --- I found it in an old --really old--1990 -- Bon Appetit & we thought it was good --& even better very easy & quick to make.  Just open a couple of cans -- & chop a small number of vegs --- It called for one Tbsp. Tom paste, -- but I had opened a can for something else & put remains in refrig -- so I just used 2 heaping Tbsp. and was good!! and it finished the tiny can.  The veg. stock was mine -- thought it needed more juice since it was a chowder --
Love ya
Mom

Seafood Chowder

2 - 4 Servings

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 onion sliced (I would chop)
1 celery stalk chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 can clams (I bought 11 1/2 oz. whole clams)
1 10 3/4 oz. Tom. soup
1 8 oz. bottle clam juice
2 Tbsp. Tom. paste
1/2 # snapper fillets - cut in 1 " pieces (I 1/2 baked them)
3/4 # shrimp - uncooked
2 Tbsp. parsley
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
I added some vegetable stock to make more broth

Heat oil -- add onion, celery & garlic -- Saute for about 10 minutes.  Drain clams -- Keep liquid ---add liquid to pan.  Stir in soup, paste, & bring to a boil.  Add snapper, shrimp, & clams, parsley, Italian Seasoning & cayenne.  Simmer until shrimp & snapper are cooked -- 3 - 5 minutes.  Season with salt & pepper.  I added veg stock ( in box ) to make more soup. 
We loved it! --
  --- Mom
