How to Make Easy Shrimp Corn Chowder

Step One

First, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour until it’s nice and smooth.

Next, add the onions and celery to the pan and sauté until it’s soft, about 5 minutes.

Next, add the water, potatoes, corn kernels, creamed corn, salt, and pepper. Stir everything together until well mixed.

Now, cover the pan and let it simmer until the potatoes are beginning to get tender, about 25 minutes.

Step Two

Turn the heat to medium-low and add the milk to the saucepan. Let the soup simmer for 10 minutes.

Finally, add the shrimp and let the soup simmer for another 5 minutes, until the shrimp is heated.
