Here’s another genius leftover makeover that takes the shrimp, corn, and potatoes from the Easy Cajun Shrimp Boil and transforms them into something completely new. We’ve used mostly chicken broth with a bit of milk and lightly thickened with a bit of flour to keep the consistency light. If you don’t eat chicken or want to use chicken broth, use a combination of ⅔ cup water or vegetable broth combined with 1 cup of bottled clam juice instead.


Easy Cajun Shrimp Boil

2½ cup(s), (including 2 corn pieces)

No-salt-added chicken stock

1 cup(s)

Kosher salt

¼ tsp(s)

Black pepper

¼ tsp(s), plus more for garnish

2% reduced fat milk

½ cup(s)

All-purpose flour

2 tbsp(s)


2 tsp(s), fresh, chopped


  1. Chop shrimp and potatoes from Easy Cajun shrimp boil. Cut corn kernels off of cobs. In a small saucepan, bring stock, salt, and pepper to a boil. Stir in shrimp, potatoes, and corn; reduce heat and simmer until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk milk and flour. Slowly whisk milk mixture into soup; cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Divide soup evenly between 2 bowls; top with chives and black pepper.
  3. Per serving (about 1½ cups chowder and 1 tsp chives)
