B C Ferries Manhattan Clam Chowder for First Class Passengers

55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
20 ingredients
4-6 servings
In British Columbia, Canada, the Ferries that travel the beautiful trip between the Mainland and Vancouver Island, are famous for their "Manhattan" styled Clam Chowder. In the small village by Horseshoe Bay terminal, one of the little bistro's has it's own kicked up version. This is my copycat version of their version! NOTE - this is on the spicy/hot side so if you aren't a fan of that, don't add the red pepper flakes. Serve up with a crusty white artisan bread and a crisp, dry white wine. May I recommend BC's Sonoma Ranch Pinot Grigio. UPDATE: Sept 3, 2012 - Upped the flavour factor on this tasty soup last night by adding in a small chopped zucchini, a small finely chopped fennel bulb and instead of using tomato paste I added 2 TBSP of chipotle adobe sauce. If you don't like the spice of peppers you could add some liquid smoke or smoked paprika instead. Because of the added ingredients I added a bit more clamato and a bit more wine.
