Author Notes: This recipe is adapted from a Peruvian Shrimp and Corn Chowder from Food and Wine. I've added some umami ingredients, such as fish sauce. And switched the cream for coconut cream. And added a few more flavor components that I think give this chowder a bigger bang then the original recipe.sandra
