    What a splendid soup ! Subtle fish flavor, remarkably good broth, and just the perfect lunch on a cold, blustery day. Fish chowders made with delicate white fish are such a nice change from clam chowders. They are definitely milder and the consistency is just right.

    Fish and Potato Chowder

    Fish and Potato Chowder

    4 servings
    307 calories

    2 slices bacon
    3 c red potato, diced (or I used canned diced potatoes)
    1 c chopped onion
    3 T flour
    16 oz. clam juice
    2 c skim milk
    1 T chopped thyme (or 1 t thyme flakes)
    ½ t salt
    1/2 t pepper
    1 t onion powder
    12 oz. skinless halibut fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces (or other firm white fish)
    2 T chopped parsley

    Cook bacon in soup pot until crisp them remove, cool and crumble. Reserve 1 T of the drippings in the pan and add potato and onion and cook 5 minutes. Then add flour and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add clam juice and bring to a boil then cover, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender (less time is needed if you use canned potatoes). Add milk and simmer (do not boil). Add spices and fish and cook 3 minutes or until fish is done. Stir in parsley at the very end and garnish bowls with crumbled bacon.

    Shake and Bake fans will love this one. Both the fish and the potatoes get a coating so the meal is crisp, the fish stays nice and moist, and the potatoes (‘chips’) are just a little different. This is crunchy goodness !

    This is a great seafood stew full of flavor and body. If you have leftover bits of cooked fish. you only need to put them in the crock for 15 minutes or so to heat up. If you like it a bit spicier, add some hot sauce and you get a jambalaya tasting dish.
