Recipe type: dairy-free, gluten-free
Serves: 6-8
  • 4 Tbsp ghee, earth balance, or your favorite butter-like oil (... or butter if you can tolerate some dairy)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp celery seed
  • 1-2 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp dill, dried (4tsp if using fresh)
  • 1 tsp sea salt or 1½-2 tsp Herbamare
  • ¼ tsp pepper, fresh ground (or more to taste)
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled & cut into 1in cubes
  • 1 cup water, no salt chicken or seafood broth
  • 2 cans coconut milk, but just mostly the cream (reserve the water for a smoothie)
  • 2-3 cups fresh or frozen seafood combination (skinless haddock fillet pieces, wild salmon fillet pieces, shrimp, lobster claws with liquid, scallops, crab)
  • 1½ cup frozen corn
  • lemon wedges or parsley, as garnish (optional)
  1. In a large pot, melt ghee or oil over medium heat.
  2. Add in onions, herbs, salt & pepper. Sautee for 5 mins, until onions are browning.
  3. Add potatoes & sautee for 5 mins more. (feel free to add a bit of the water to prevent potatoes from sticking to the pot)
  4. Increase heat to high, add 1 cup water/broth & bring to a boil.
  5. Turn heat down slightly & boil potatoes, stirring often, until they reached desired tenderness (about 10 mins)
  6. Turn heat to low, add frozen corn & coconut cream and stir well. Add some coconut water or more water/broth if you prefer a slightly thinner chowder.
  7. Add in seafood & fish, and cook for another 5 mins, or until the fish is flaky, stirring often.
  8. Add salt & pepper to taste, and remove bay leaf.
  9. Serve with lemon wedges, fresh chopped parsley, and fresh ground pepper, as garnish if you'd like.
