Low Carb Seafood Chowder

I love seafood chowder and it’s one of my favorites for a long time. The big question for me was what to substitute potatoes with? I saw different low carb variations with cauliflower and daikon radish but I didn’t like the taste. Then I tried to make it with swede and it was spot on for me. This low carb seafood chowder was creamy and satisfying and I like to use mussels with shells for extra flavor.
