Bay Scallop Chowder

Every 1 time inwards a piece I brand a dish that no thing how neat it tastes, I exactly can’t teach past times how it looks, together with that was the instance amongst this real easy, incredibly delicious scallop chowder. 

The original culprit was the caramelization from the bacon together with onions, which provided neat flavor, but the hue they imparted, along amongst the pale dark-green celery, together with yellowish potatoes, made things form of dingy.

I could convey browned the scallops first, together with gone fifty-fifty farther to the night side, but scallops this small-scale together with sweetness postulate to last eaten equally shortly equally they’re cooked, together with past times the fourth dimension nosotros reheated them inwards the soup, they’d last hard, dry, together with disappointing.
Maybe it’s exactly me. I promise that’s the instance here, otherwise we’re going to postulate to brainstorm to a greater extent than or less form of make-over, because this bowl of chowder is also expert non to make. If you lot exercise brand it, together with desire a thicker, to a greater extent than traditional chowder base, but squash to a greater extent than or less of your potatoes into the mixture.
A roux tin also last used to tighten things up, but since scallops are then rich, I prefer the lighter texture seen herein. So whether you lot figure out a means to pretty this upwardly or not, I promise you lot grade it a endeavor soon. Enjoy!
