SEAFOOD AND CORN CHOWDER is historically a peasant food  prepared in a large pot or cauldron. The ingredients for chowder includes vegetables , and often fish or seafood, depending  on the area you live in. You can make this dish with  or mussels, different types of fish, scallops or shrimp.  It is a simple but sweet soup that gets its flavor from fresh ingredients. Sweet corn and shrimp are my favorite ingredients in this recipe.

1 medium onion, diced

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (optional)
