Corn and Lobster Chowder

My man and I have a favorite place to eat when we’re in T-Town. It’s call Kilkenny’s Pub and Grill and it’s on Cherry Street.  G-Man loves their steak, and I always order the corn and lobster chowder.

It’s delicious! And spicy. And delicious. So I decided to try to make it myself.

First I asked if they would give me the recipe. Answer? NO!

All righty, then. I thought about it a while and thought I could start with Ina’s Corn Chowder and go from there. Remember the chowder?

I’d just put in fewer potatoes, less corn, leave out the cheese and add Cayenne Pepper (about a teaspoon or so) and a few dashes of Louisiana Hot Sauce. Oh, and lobster. I’d need about a pound of lobster.

And guess what! It worked. Amazingly enough, it tasted as good (or better) than Kilkenny’s. Mine had more lobster, but like I told my man, if they used as much lobster as I did, they’d have to charge way more for a cup of it.

I might even try it sometime with shrimp. It’s easier to get in my Small Town World.
