Seafood chowder

I really like chowder but don’t have it as I’m not sure the rest of my family will eat it. I might make it just for the grown ups one day.

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 tsp olive oil

1 leek, finely sliced

1 garlic clove, crushed

200g white fish, skinned

198g can of sweetcorn, drained

180g soft cheese, softened

275ml skimmed milk

2 tbsp roughly chopped parsley, plus extra to garnish

100g peeled, cooked prawns

PLace  the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil over a meduim heat. When boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until tender.

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, and sweat the leek and garlic in the oil with the white fish placed on top, to steam for about 5 minutes. When the fish is cooked it should flake easily.

Drain the potatoes and add to the pan with the leeks,fish and remaining ingredients. Cook over a medium heat for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the soft cheese has melted, all the ingredients have heated through and the chowder has thickened. Garnish with a little chopped parsley.x

Serves 6-8
