Slow Cooker Prawn Chowder

Creamy, satisfying and comforting, my slow cooker prawn chowder takes only 15 minutes to prepare, then simmers away in a crock pot for 2-5 hours.

I top it with freshly ground black pepper, snipped herbs and a squeeze of lemon and OMG I it!

Classic comfort food with a gourmet touch.

Timesaving tip:

Buy cleaned and deveined prawn meat for this recipe, instead of spending time shelling and cleaning the prawns yourself.
