Recipe for Shrimp Corn Chowder

Nothing says winter like a delicious bowl of chowder. It is hearty and warm and just what you need when going outside requires too many layers. While there are other soups I make more frequently in the winter months, this is my very favorite chowder. The richness of the shrimp and hint of curry give this Shrimp Corn Chowder a special touch.
