Add liberally to boiling pot of water with shellfish, corn, potatoes, sausage and lemons.

Season seafood chowders for extra flavor.

Sprinkle of fish before grilling, sautéing, or baking.

Stir into salmon or crab cakes before cooking for deep flavor and color throughout.

~4-6 servings~

4 Tbsp butter(divided)/2 tbsp oil
1 large carrot chopped
1 large onion chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2-3 tsp SNAP
1/3 cup flour
4 cups seafood stock (or your favorite, handy stock)
4 cups whole milk
4 large potatoes chopped bite-size
Canned clams - 1 large or 2 small (use a pound of fresh if you are so lucky to have them!)
1/2 cup chopped fresh herbs - parsley, chive, or thyme
Hot sauce and your favorite bread or crackers to serve.

Melt 2 Tbsp butter & oil in a large soup pot over med-low heat. Stir in onion, celery, and carrot and cook until soft but not brown. Lower heat if necessary.
Push vegetables out to the sides of the pot and drop in last 2 Tbsp butter to melt. Add SNAP and stir 30 seconds until fragrant. Stir in flour and until completely combined but not brown, then stir into veggies to make sure everything is coated.
Gradually pour in stock and stir to avoid lumps. Mixture will start out thick like gravy and thin out to stew consistency. Raise heat and let bubble a minute or so. Now gradually stir in milk to combine. Add potato, cover, and cook until tender; about 15-20 minutes.
Uncover and test a potato chunk with a knife. If it is soft, then add the seafood and any canning juices, and cook just a few minutes to heat through and combine.
Stir in half of fresh herbs and serve in shallow bowls with a drizzle of hot sauce and a sprinkling of fresh herbs on top.
