Product recommendation
Pernod is an anise-flavored liqueur that adds flavor and depth to the chowder.

Preparation steps

1.
Melt the butter, in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, or about 5 to 8 minutes. Add the potatoes, stirring to coat with butter; cook for 2 minutes. Add the scallops and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often.
2.
Add the cream and simmer for 25 minutes, add the Pernod and thyme; season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender.
3.
If chowder becomes too thick, thin it with a small amount of milk. Ladle chowder into bowls and garnish with snipped chives. Serve.
