Cutting the sweetness of coconut milk for chowder

AbiCreme | Apr 20, 201409:23 PM     10

I've recently bought Ivar's cookbook and have been making the clam chowder. I love this recipe, but have been looking for alternatives to the dairy.

I heard it mentioned last week that coconut milk can be used in the place of dairy and tried it this evening. The can comes a few tablespoons short of the needed 2 cups so I used water to top it off.

It came out pretty well, no coconut flavor, but a little sweet. Salt helped reduce the sweetness, but not perfect.

Might it be possible to use something other than water with the coconut milk to help cut the sweetness?
