Shrimp and Crab Chowder

When you have partied over the weekend, you think its best to pump your body with antioxidants, since shellfish is a good source of Selenium, then why not make some Shrimp and Crab Chowder.

A nice way to wrap up the weekend before going back to work is through a satisfied stomach. This warm, filling chowder is sure to make that happen. I like to have this soup with a slice of buttered French bread.u
