Fill 'em Up Fish Chowder

45 Min

No way, this isn't simply a bowl of soup you have before dinner....It's a whole meal in a bowl!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 pound sliced deli ham, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 (1-quart) cups milk, divided
  • 2 pounds fresh or frozen white-fleshed fish fillets, such as cod, haddock, or whiting, thawed if frozen, cut into large chunks
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the ham, celery, and onion and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the onion is tender.

  2. Add the broth, potatoes, paprika, thyme, cayenne pepper, and salt and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add 31/2 cups milk and the fish and return to a low boil. Allow to boil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and the remaining 1/2 cup milk until well blended. Stir into the chowder, simmering until thickened.


This is usually served topped with ketchup and with oyster crackers on the side.
