"I threw this recipe together when I was craving clam chowder but was dieting/cutting back on my fat intake. I was quite pleased with this. The blended potatoes give this a creamy texture so you don't miss the heavy cream."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven or heavy bottom pot and toss in the onion, celery and garlic; cook until onions are translucent.

Step 2

Add the fish stock, juice from the canned clams, potatoes and corn and cook until potatoes are fork tender.

Step 3

Cream this mixture with an immersion blender or by processing it in a blender in batches. If using the blender, do not use the lid as it will pop off and make a mess, cover with a towel and process. Return to pot when creamy.

Step 4

Add the cayenne pepper and clams and heat through.
