In a deep, heavy saucepan or stockpot, melt the butter;
Saute onion, carrot and celery until just before soft;
Add half of the desired Dock of the Bay and stir;
Add stock and bring to a boil;
Lower the heat, add potatoes and simmer for one hour or until potatoes are tender;
Turn up the burner a bit and heat until seafood/shellfish is cooked through, just a few minutes
Add heavy cream, stir well until heated through;
Adjust seasoning - taste and add more Dock of the Bay!
It's ready to serve - garnish with green onions and bacon.
It's even better the next day - Use whatever vegetables and seafood/shellfish you have available.
Serve with Sourdough bread - Enjoy!
