Peruvian Shrimp-and-Corn Chowder Recipe

Peruvian Chowder

In Peru, small streams wend their way from the mountains to the coast, and the delicious shrimp that fill them are cooked with local corn, squash, and potatoes to make this South American chowder called cupe. Don’t peel the shrimp before cooking them: The shells will flavor the cooking oil, which in turn will flavor the soup. The corn is traditionally left on the cob, but if the prospect of eating it this way (it is messy) bothers you, use two cups of kernels instead.

INGREDIENTS

  1. 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  2. 1 pound unpeeled medium shrimp
  3. 3 teaspoons salt
  4. 1 onion, chopped
  5. 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  6. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. Dash Tabasco sauce
  9. 1 small butternut squash (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
  10. 1/2 small head green cabbage (about 1 1/4 pounds), chopped (about 1 quart)
  11. 1 pound baking potatoes (about 2), peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  12. 4 ears of corn, halved
  13. 2 quarts water
  14. 1 cup heavy cream
  15. 1 cup frozen peas (optional)

How to Clean Shrimp

Easiest:  Hold shrimp by back and pull off legs.  Then pull shell off the back, leaving the tail on.  Hold shrimp belly down in your and with back facing out and cut a slit down the back length of the shrimp. Rinse with water to remove vein.

 

More advanced options:

Step 1

1. Devein the shrimp by peeling the shell from it. Use a paring knife to make a shallow slit along the back from the head end to the tail end. Look for the black sand vein that runs along the center of the back. If the vein is there, use the tip of the knife to carefully remove and discard it, as shown. Rinse the shrimp under cold running water.

Step 2

2. If desired, halve deveined shrimp by placing the shrimp, front side down, on a cutting board. Cut all the way through the shrimp lengthwise, making two pieces.
