My slow cooker prawn (shrimp) chowder takes only 15 minutes to prepare, then simmers away in a crock pot until you’re ready to serve it.  

Add your seasonings and garnishes of choice.   I add freshly ground pepper and a squeeze of lemon, and top with shredded cheddar cheese and a dessertspoon of cream.
