Sian's Plan- Recipe for Irish Fish Chowder

While some of you may root Fish Chowder firmly in New England, for me there is nothing more Irish than sitting in the pub with a big bowl of seafood chowder or fish soup after a long rambling walk along a windswept Irish beach. It goes without saying that it should be served with soda bread and a pint of Guinness. 

Here’s my quick homemade version. This is made with natural yoghurt as a much healthier option. If you must use cream, keep it for special occasions.  

A tip is to always keep small bags of frozen seafood in your freezer (these can be purchased in supermarkets and have a variety of seafood in them). Then you can rustle up a taste of home in a half an hour, even if the only rambling walk you’ve done is up the three blocks from the subway. 

Total Time: 35

Cook Time: 25

Prep Time: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 tblsp Olive oil
  • 100 g Bacon lardons
  • 1 Onion (Finely Chopped)
  • 650 mls Fish Stock
  • 4 Waxy Potatoes (Peel and chop into 2cm dices)
  • 400 g Fish (salmon, cod, prawns, shellfish)
  • 4 tsp Parsley (Use fresh if you prefer)

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan.

  4. Add stock and potatoes which have been cut into 2cm size pieces and bring to boil.
  5. Reduce heat and cook potatoes until soft.
  6. While the potatoes are cooking, trim, skin, debone the fish and cut into small pieces. Add to the pot with the herbs and cook gently for 10 minutes until fish is cooked.
  7. Reduce by boiling rapidly for a few minutes if liquid is very thin.
  8. Add the natural yoghurt while the pot is off the heat.
  9. Return to heat, but do not boil.
