Recipe: Quick Clam and Crab Meat Chowder

Do you ever have those days when it's time to go food shopping, but you have to pull together a recipe at the last minute from whatever you happen to have around the house? These are creative moments, and it was just such a moment when this recipe came to be, it's easy, quick, and tastes delicious, feeds 3-4, depending upon the portions...I make it for myself, hubby and an adult son, so you can imagine it goes quickly with two big guys taking their share.

You'll need:

  • 2-3 cans prepared Clam Chowder (we use low fat, low salt or w/ sea salt) 
  • 1-2 cans Corn 
  • 1 lb. Imitation Crab Meat 
  • Sea Salt to taste (sea salt better for those w/ blood pressure problems..and all of us!) 
  • Pepper to taste.

Combine all and heat, that's it! Serve with a side salad, and a hearty whole-grain bread...eliminate the bread if you're watching calories.

Tip: Certain cuts of the Imitation Crab Meat can get very stringy if stirred, I tend to put the Crab Meat in last, stir in gently after the soup, etc. is heated up, then just heat the crab meat through.
