Clam & Shrimp Stew

This is a very quick and simple recipe but it contains all of the flavors that should be in good chowder with the added goodness of shrimp!

10 1/2 ounces canned clams

1/2 pound shrimp, shelled and cleaned

1/2 cups diced carrot

2 cups diced raw potatoes

1/2 cup diced celery

4 cups chicken broth

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons flour

1 cup cream

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Place the carrots, potatoes and celery in the chicken broth and simmer gently until all the vegetables are tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. Add the shrimp and cook a few minutes and then add the canned clams. Melt the butter in another pan and blend in the flour and then add the cream, salt and pepper and when the mixture is thickened add it to the vegetables and seafood and stir until well blended and serve. Garnish with minced parsley and sprinkle with paprika.
