Chef's Tips

Only reheat soup as needed. Keep remainder well refrigerated.
Try adding bacon or specialty sausage to give chowder another dimension.
Larger servings are a main course item with fresh bread to warm up your chilly guests.


  1. Melt the butter. Add the onions, garlic, corn, carrots, celery and red pepper. Sauté over medium heat until onions are soft. Add the flour and cook 1 more minute.
  2. Add 125 ml of broth and mix with the flour to form a paste. Add remaining broth, thyme, potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Add the clams, reserved clam juice, tuna and the cream. Bring to a boil. Adjust salt and pepper if necessary.
  4. Sprinkle with fresh parsley upon serving.

** Alternatively you could use Pink or Sockeye Salmon instead of Tuna if you wish.
