Skippers Spokane Ingredients:
- 1 L of canned clam juice
- 1 cup of russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks 2

- 1 bay leaf
- 1⁄4 cup of all-purpose flour or self-rising flour

- Hickory liquid smoke
- 1 -3 drop of Tabasco sauce, for flavour

- Freshly ground black pepper to taste
NOTE: Prepare ingredients before starting! Experienced, or quick, cooks can ignore this advice. I’m neither experienced nor quick. If I don’t prepare the ingredients before starting the chowder, it’s a disaster.
Step 1: Take out a medium saucepan, and pour the whole bottled clam juice over high heat. Peel the potatoes and add in the saucepan to soften. Cover with a lid and simmer until the potatoes are tender. It won’t take more than 10 minutes. When done, remove from heat and set aside for further use.
Step 2: In another saucepan, melt the butter over medium low heat. Fragrant, right?
Step 3: Then, add the chopped bacon for 8 to 10 minutes or until the bacon pieces begins to have brown color.
Step 4: Now, add 2 cups of finely chopped yellow onions, 1 ¼ cups of finely chopped celery, minced garlic cloves, and bay leaf. Saute these vegetables for 6 minutes or until the veggies get soften.
Step 5: Stir them in ¼ cup of all-purpose flour, and continue cooking for 2 minutes. You must not brown the flour.
Step 6: Slowly whisk in the reserved juice from clams, adding potato mixture, 1 ½ cups of half and half, hickory liquid smoke salt, and tabasco sauce. Stirring occasionally, keep the skipper cape cod in simmer to blend flavor.
Step 7: Lastly, season it with kosher salt and black pepper as per taste.
Skippers seafood & chowder can be enjoyed after 10 minutes of simmering. If desired to enjoy later, it can be sit on stove easily for hours after hours.
Fried chowder is something that after having, you will fill completely satisfied. As a side dish, this deserve an Oscar, if there would be any!
