Traditional Fish Chowder Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6 - 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds haddock or cod fillets, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 pound salt pork, rinded and diced
  • 3 large onions, roughly chopped
  • 6 small potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 quart milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
How to cook Traditional Fish Chowder:
  • Blanch the salt pork in boiling water and drain. Sauté the cubes in a heavy saucepan over low heat until the fat has rendered out. Remove the pork with a slotted spoon and drain. Add the onions to the pork fat and sauté until golden.
  • Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, boil the potatoes for 5 minutes in just enough water to cover them. Add the fish to the Dutch oven.
  • Remove the onions from the pork fat and sprinkle over the fish.
  • Tip out and discard any fat remaining in the pan. Sprinkle the flour into the pan and stir in the milk, thyme and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the mixture into the Dutch oven, cover and simmer over low heat for 1 1/2 hours without stirring. Season to taste and sprinkle with the reserved, browned salt pork just before serving.
  • Serve the Traditional Fish Chowder hot with crusty bread or crackers.
