A question about a recipe: Manhattan Clam Chowder


I have a question about the recipe "Manhattan Clam Chowder" from thirschfeld.

I don't use bacon in my recipes. What can I substitute for the flavor?

Pancetta or prosciutto. If it is a pork issue maybe add some white fish like cod or other white fish. It will still be satisfying with just the clams

Don't would be my answer. You could use liquid smoke if that's the flavor profile you're looking for. Otherwise use piementon (smoked paprika) . It should be available in the ethnic foods isle of your local grocer.

I'll agree with NeuB here. Liquid smoke (available in supermarkets) was the first thing that came to mind but smoked pimenton (paprika) is also a good suggestion.

Try looking for smoked salt. Around here they have it at the food coop with the bulk spices. It makes everything smokey and delicious!
