Here is a REAL Fluffy Chowder recipe for making two large servings at home.
Make your own clam chowder from scratch, or use two fifteen-ounce containers of high-end Clam Chowder, like LEGAL SEA FOODS New England clam chowder, available at Shaw’s supermarkets (never use a big bag of industrial-strength, Kettle Cuisine LLC New England Clam Chowder ® from Lynn, Massachusetts).
A half pound of freshly caught, cooked lobster meat (about a couple of small tails and a claw); freshly cooked lobster meat is available at Al’s Seafood in North Hampton, or cook your own. (Never, ever use frozen lobster meat from South Shore Seafoods, Ltd. from Prince Edward Island, Canada.)
Sherry (not cooking sherry), available at the State Liquor Store.
Butter, available almost anywhere but Best Buy ®.
Start with the lobster. Cut the cooked lobster meat into quarter-sized or larger pieces and sauté in butter.
Add sherry to taste (don’t hold back!), and simmer together.
Nuke the canned clam chowder, then transfer the chowder to a saucepan.
Add the sautéed lobster to the chowder and simmer for at least 10-15 seconds.
Voila, fluffy chowder in less than ten minutes; that’s all there is to it!
Always serve fluffy chowder with unoaked California Chardonnay, in your glass, not in the chowder. (You can’t do that at the Harbor!)
