Do you like fish chowder? I love it but I never used to make it. Then I found this recipe at Diana’s Kitchen last November and I’ve been making it ever since. In fact, I made it last night and I took some pictures while I did. Now you can make it, too!
I’m not going to put the actual recipe here, as I think that might violate copyright, but if you just click on the words Hearty Fish Chowder you will find the recipe. Now just follow my pictures to see how easy this is.
You chop up some carrots and onions and saute them in butter. The recipe calls for celery but I don’t use it.
And you chop up some potatoes and pour yourself a glass of wine. Some people think the wine is optional but not me.
After the carrots and onions have softened you add the potatoes and then lay a 1 lb piece of fish on top. Pour in a cup of white wine and let that simmer until the fish is done. This is the part that I think is brilliant. The fish basically poaches on top of the vegetables. It stays firm this way and doesn’t get all cooked down into nothing like it would if you cut the fish up first.
This is what the fish looks like after 15 minutes or so. It’s flaky and smells soooo good.
Then you just break up the fish with a wooden spoon, add some milk and a pat of butter and let it heat through. Serve it with some warm bread from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day and you’ve got a wonderful meal for a chilly night.
Try it – you’ll like it!
