  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions. Cut potatoes into ½" chunks. Pat shrimp dry.

    [PIC: green onions, potatoes]

  2. 2

    Make the Muffins

    In a mixing bowl, combine corn muffin mix, ¼ cup water and half the green onions (reserve remaining for chowder and garnish) until a sticky dough forms. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Transfer batter to four cups of prepared muffin tin, filling ⅓ the way up. Bake in hot oven until muffin tops are lightly browned and start to crack, 14-17 minutes. While muffins bake, start chowder.

  3. 3

    Cook the Shrimp

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to hot pot and cook until opaque and shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Reserve pot; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Start the Chowder

    Return pot used to sear shrimp to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add half the remaining green onions (reserve remaining for chowder), potatoes, and corn to hot pot. Stir often until potatoes are slightly softened, 6-8 minutes. Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains in pot.

  5. 5

    Finish Chowder and Finish Dish

    Add 1 ½ cup water, mirepoix base, cream cheese, seasoning blend, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pot. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until potatoes are tender, mixture is smooth, and cream cheese is melted, 6-8 minutes. Stir in shrimp until completely combined. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with remaining green onions and sour cream. Bon appétit!
