1Seafood chowder.

2Place chopped : 1kg potato, 2 tablespoons of Chives, 2 celery sticks, 1onion, 1/4 cup oyster sauce and 2 cups of water into the slow cooker. Put on high for 1hr & low for 4-5hours.

3Remove lid. Stick blend until smooth.

4Then Place in 800g - 1kg of marinara seafood (grocery store mix from the deli). Put lid back on. Turn slow cooker to high for about 30-40mins until seafood is cooked. (Seafood is cooked when prawns are orange and fish is white). Add 300ml or more of cream. Serve with bread and a sprinkle of chives.

5Tips: if there is too much fluid after blending, leave the lid off when cooking the seafood. Also add more cream if you wish. It also works well with lite cream for lower calorie option.

Thank you for sharing your recipe I will definitely be making again.
Flavour surprised me and only added some sweet potato to the recipe for first time making it also leaving texture a bit chunky.

This is awesome! And so easy to prepare. I accidentally peeled 2 kg potatoes so I doubled everything in the recipe except the marinara, instead adding a very large fillet of salmon cubed up. Made so much I’ve still got 4 meals left in the freezer after eating it last night and again tonight! Thank you so much Anne Turnbull!

I don’t see why not – it would be a nice flavour change 🙂 Being softer they may just cook faster too

Absolutely loved this. I added diced carrot as well. I diced the potatoes.
Before blending I took some of the veg out and added them back in once blended so we had a few veg to bite into with the seafood.
I used fresh seafood (Mussels, scallops, prawns and white fish).
3 adults and 1 child gave this all thumbs up.
Would definitely do this again.

Love this recipe. I didn’t have any chives so left that out. Seafood I used was fish and prawns. At time of adding seafood I also added peas. Just before serving I added chopped shallots. I just added cream until I was happy with it

Never have we made a Chowder so we tried this one for dinner .. .
We added Australian seafood — Flathead , Calamari , prawns and sea scallops…..
We don’t use supermarket marinara mix as it is overseas farmed rubbish that we choose not to eat ..
Was very nice and will have this again .. turned out very good …

I love Seafood Chowder but have never been game to try to make it myself. This recipe is easy to do and is as authentic as you can get!
I did cube the potatoes very small so they cooked a bit quicker that way. Love it!

This had a great taste. But next time I would use fresh seafood prawns, fish and squid

Made this for my husband who loves seafood chowder. He said it was really good. Lots of flavour and that I should definitely make it again.
I kept some of the potatoes as chunks rather than blitz them all…for texture. When adding seafood….I added some marinara mix but mostly used fresh snapper and some surimi. I also added peas towards the end.
Thank you for sharing the recipe Ann.
