This was tasty. We did need to add a decent amount of salt and pepper. Also the description lists to add 2 cups of water... i don't think it needed it. Because I wasn't sure if it was a typo I added 1 cup of water and the chowder ended up more soup like and not very thick. We will make this again but may add some extra spices and will not add the 2 cups of water. I think larger shrimp chopped up would be better, but for the sake of time the canned shrimp is nice.
