Nova Scotia Seafood Chowder

Being in Nova Scotia last summer and trying seafood chowder in every restaurant I went was awesome! I found this recipe a while ago and never had an opportunity to try it. So, finally, here it is!!!!

  • 2 cups of frozen seafood mix
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 ribs celery , thinly sliced
  • 2 onions , chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 bottle clam juice , (240 mL)
  • 2 yellow-fleshed potatoes , peeled and cubed
  • 12 oz haddock fillets , or other firm-fleshed fish fillets, cut in 2-inch (5 cm) chunks
  • 1 can (11.3 oz/320 g) frozen lobster meat , thawed and drained
  • 3 cups 10% cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

In saucepan, bring the seafood mix and wine to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 5 minutes. Strain, reserving broth;
In Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat; fry celery, onions, salt, paprika and cayenne pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Stir in reserved broth, water and clam juice, scraping up any brown bits on bottom of pan. Add potatoes; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered and stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
