Lobster and Shrimp Holiday Chowder, Gluten Free + Dairy Free
Gluten Free, Dairy Free Seafood Chowder
A good seafood chowder just makes the holidays feel more “holiday-like”, especially in Florida where we will never have a blanket of fresh white snow to make it feel like Christmas! This year, we opted for a gluten free, dairy free lobster and shrimp chowder that was perfect for Christmas Day. It would make for a fabulous New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day meal as well.
Thoughts on New England Chowders
I loved growing up in the Northeast. The beautiful changing seasons, the picturesque mountains and pristine beaches. My fondest memories, however, seem to center around food. The seasons provided an abundance of local produce, fruits, cheeses and meats. I was constantly in search of the perfect “everything”. The perfect apple pie accompanied by fresh cider donuts on a crisp Fall afternoon after raking leaves. The perfect chicken pot pie to enjoy the first snowfall at a quaint Vermont inn. The perfect strawberry shortcake while watching the boats on Saratoga Lake. And, one of my all time favorites… New England Chowders.
