As the autumn winds roll in, chilling our bones and stripping our trees of their vibrant foliage, we may need a little extra something in our diet to keep us warm through the long winter. Keep reading for three suggested Fall inspired fish recipes to keep you warm as the temperatures outside go down. 


Bacon, Shrimp, and Corn Chowder 

Nothing remedies the chilly New England air quite like chowder. In this recipe, we offer a unique twist on the traditional New England clam chowder and corn chowder. To make this hearty and delicious bacon, shrimp, and corn chowder, all you need is a large pot or dutch oven, your ingredients, and a blender. 

Cook your meats individually, one at a time starting with the bacon, once finished set aside. Cook your shrimp in the same pot until bright pink, then also set aside. Sauté your garlic and onions until fragrant, add seasoning and then chicken sticks, corn, and half and half. Blending your broth will allow you to get the creamiest outcome, but if you are in a time crunch this step can be skipped. Once blended and properly heated (about 30 minutes), add your shrimp and bacon back in. Serve hot with fresh bread. 

Kids will love this recipe, which combines the savory taste of bacon with fresh shrimp, smothered in a creamy and perfectly seasoned chowder broth. With ingredients that won’t break the bank, you can make large amounts of this chowder at once, to either save for later or let the whole family enjoy leftovers.
