Recipe selected from the eMeals Quick & Healthy Family Plan.

Shrimp Chowder

Serves 6


  • 1 leek
  • 8 slices center-cut bacon
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 (32-oz) carton low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1 (22-oz) pkg refrigerated diced potatoes with onion (such as Simply Potatoes)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ lb peeled and deveined, large wild-caught raw shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives (or use green onion)


  1. Cut leek in half lengthwise, and thinly slice white and light green parts only. Rinse under cold water.
  2. Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, reserving 2 Tbsp drippings in pot. Crumble bacon.
  3. Cook leek and garlic in hot drippings 2 minutes or until tender. Add broth, milk, potatoes, and salt; bring to a boil. Simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Mash potatoes with a potato masher to thicken soup. Stir in shrimp; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Top with bacon and chives.


We suggest buying wild-caught shrimp. If you use frozen shrimp, be sure to check the label or verify with your fishmonger that it’s chemical-free or individually quick-frozen (IQF).
