  • In a large dutch oven or stock pot, melt butter and add celery, onions, leeks and garlic. When vegetables have softened, add chicken broth, clam juice, potatoes, carrots, black pepper, salt, thyme, bay leaves, and Tabasco sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat so medium-low to simmer. Cook for about 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are almost fork-tender.
  • Season shrimp and cod with Old Bay seasoning. Add shrimp and cod to the stock-pot and simmer another 7-8 minutes or until fish flakes easily and shrimp turns pink.
  • Add half and half. Combine flour and milk until flour is dissolved and slowly stir into the chowder until you reach your desired thickness (you may not need all of it). Stir until thickened and season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove bay leaves and serve!
