When I think of fish chowder I imagine something white and creamy..
Onions and bacon frying in butter is always a good start to a dish for me!!
I kept the fish pretty chunky as I thought half an hour simmering seemed like a long time for haddock. I also kept the potato small as I didn’t want to also have undercooked potatoes!
I didn’t bother beating the tomatoes to a pulp, i just added the can straight to the pot with the stock and seasonings.
I did not have this simmering for half an hour, I think it was just about 15 minutes. I did think maybe I should’ve had the potatoes simmering in the liquid for 10 minutes then add the fish later on. The fish was really starting to break down into flakes after the 15 minutes.
So how did this taste? It is lovely, the fish is really soft and the potatoes are also just the right texture. The flavour from the sauce with the tomatoes bacon and seasonings is great too. Overall it’s a good soup and another good family dinner and maybe considering it’s not a creamy chowder makes it a lower calorie version of a fish chowder!
Would I make this again? Yes I would
