North Atlantic Shrimp Chowder

Here is an original East Coast recipe for shrimp chowder.

Ingredients for Shrimp Chowder
1 1/2 lbs. North Atlantic Shrimp, heads of, but shell still on.
1 teaspoon whole allspice
4 tablespoons olive oil
6 cups water
3 cups water
1 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 small, ripe tomato or 2 tablespoons canned tomatoes
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 cup diced potatoes
1 cup tiny macaroni cooked

Tie allspice in cheesecloth and add to the 6 cups of water along with olive oil. Boil for 10 minutes, then add shrimp and wait until shrimp turns pink and curls (3-4 minutes.) Remove shrimp from broth. Set shrimp aside to cook, then peel. Discard spice bag. Add the 3 cups water to stock and bring to a boil; add celery, onions, carrots and tomato. Simmer 10 minutes. Then add peas and diced potatoes. When potatoes are just about cooked, add the cooked drained macaroni along with shrimp.
