Creamy Fish Chowder

January/February 1993, EatingWell Serves Two

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (28 votes)

Low-fat milk and mashed potatoes make this chowder so rich and creamy you won't miss the actual cream. Farm-raised tilapia and abundant Pacific cod—both with tender, flaky textures—are ocean-friendly choices.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This is a great recipe. The only changes I made were (1) I cooked the bacon in the microwave (very crispy and not greasy). (2) Softened the onion, celery etc. in one tablespoon of butter. (3) Used Haddock for my choice of fish. I found...

Really Yummy,

I pretty much followed the recipe, but throw in some dried chilli, as the frying stage. I chopped my potatoes, up quite small, so they cooked faster. I also didn't put my fish in until everything was cooked and blended, then I added it and let it cook. I also didn't use any corn starch, it was really thick and I really didn't need it. In fact I ended up adding a little extra milk. It tasted great and I will make again for sure, but double everything.

Didn't really make enough for 4 people, think the recipe needs to be doubled

Really good, with a few adjustments

I enjoyed this chowder, but I made a few changes: First, I used 2 pieces of bacon instead of one. I didn't add the fish while the soup was simmering--I let the potatoes get soft, then I used my immersion blender to blend the soup right in the pot. Then, I added the fish and cooked it through (I used mahi mahi). I used fat free half and half instead of milk, and I added some creole seasoning for more flavor. I added some hot sauce, and it was delicious!

Quick but Bland

My husband thought the fish had a spongy texture. I thought it was flaky and tender, but the chowder was bland. It needed maybe Tabasco or turmeric--and salt.

Quick, easy
