Prawn & Sweetcorn Chowder

Good Evening and Happy Saturday Everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely day.

This evening I’m cooking up a quick prawn and sweetcorn chowder. Although this dish is probably more suited for the winter, I was thinking about tastes that my little man hasn’t had yet, and prawns are one of them. I’m sure he’ll like them as he hasn’t turned his nose up at any seafood yet. I’ll serve this to him with some soft bread dipped in to soak up the flavours, and we’ll have it with some crusty bread. Perfect! Unfortunately I couldn’t find reduced salt fish stock (which I didn’t think I would!), but I’m happy to serve this to my little man as I will ensure that the rest of his meals are salt free. The sweetcorn is also salt free. My little man will be having this tomorrow as I’ve made enough for 4, and will serve myself and James, and will freeze his. When you reheat I would make sure its stirred through properly.

I hope you enjoy this, and have a lovely evening 🙂

Love, Natalie x
