Leftover Shrimp Boil Recipe – Shrimp Corn Chowder

We do a shrimp boil every Christmas eve – it’s a Florida thing. We always end up with some extra shrimp and goodies so I do a Shrimp Corn Chowder just about every Christmas. It’s a great use for the leftovers and an awesome dish!

Take your leftovers and cut them up small for the chowder.

Add any extras you have like ham, leftover sausage, veggies.

Add cream and cream of corn (if you have it) and cook. You usually only need about 20 minutes and it is done!
