Karl’s Chowder with Crawfish and Langoustine

I made corn chowder earlier this week, but Jan suggested that crawdaddy chowder was what Miriam needed—she is feeling sick from the medicine she is taking. She needs high fat and starches to settle the nausea. A bit of spice to cover the metallic taste in her mouth would also be nice.

Karl’s Crawdaddy Corn Chowder II

We love the crawdads at Crawdaddy on King Street in San Jose, but at $10 a pound (unshelled) it gets very expensive to make a meal of them. Crawdaddy has 4 levels of heat: mild, medium, hot, and fire. We once got their hot and the only thing we have ever had that was hotter was real Thai soup. Their mild is spicy enough for most palettes. To stretch this special treat I use 2 pounds of crawdads as a soup base (which produces about ½ pound of meat) and comes with about 2 cups of their boil sauce which has lots of garlic. To boost the meat content I also add some langoustine and shrimp. The soup with Olive Oil Garlic Bread and Tomato and Cucumber Salad is this meal:
