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
