Fish on Friday: Smoked Haddock Chowder

On Thursdays I will try to post a recipe for you to have on Friday

Serves 4
25g butter
1 large onion, peeled and sliced
1 large leek, trimmed and finely sliced
400ml fish stock
400ml milk
300g smoked haddock fillet
250g potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks
2 sweetcorn cobs
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Chives, to garnish

Sweat the onions and leeks in butter. Add the stock and milk. Add the fish, and lightly poach. Strip the corn cobs and pare off the niblets with a sharp knife.

When the fish is done, lift the fillets from the pan and set aside to cool. Add the potatoes to the remaining liquid. While they are simmering, flake the fish into a bowl and discard the skin along with any remaining bones. Add the sweetcorn to cook for the last couple of minutes. Return the flaked fish to the pot and stir.

Serve in small bowls with a garnish of chopped chives.
