This Coconut clam chowder recipe originates by my love for the traditional Thailand’s coconut soups. The first time I ate a Thai coconut soup was in 2002. I ‘ve been in Ko Lipe, a little Island on the West coast of Thailand, and it has been love at first time! So, when I think about the South-East Asia, and I desire a good clam chowder at the same moment, I like to prepare this recipe.

Sometimes, at the very end, I like to add a squeeze of lime juice, but this is a personal choice!
