But it's NOT crab -- it's imitation crabmeat so it's CHEAP... and delicious! I created this one because I really like the cream chowders that I've savored in New England. We have trouble obtaining good seafood where I live here in southern Ohio, so I decided to make due with what I COULD get. One thing that's always cheap and available around here is frozen imitation crabmeat. So I gave this a lot of thought, did some preliminary experimentation, and this dish was the ultimate result. I'm very happy with this recipe and I find it quite similar in flavor to a rich clam chowder. The idea of using local fresh and common vegetables worked out well for boosting the flavor too. While the veggies enhance the dish, make no mistake about it, this recipe definitely conveys the full ambiance of a seafood chowder. Cooking and prep times are approximate. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. big pat.
