Creamy New England Fish Chowder


THE RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 cups hot water
  • 1 pound red potatoes (3 med), cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 pound skinless fish fillets (cod, haddock, or pollock), cut into 1/2- inch pieces
  • 1 cup corn
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon unbleached, all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Butter
  • Green onions or chives as a garnish (optional)



INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan, place it on a plate, and crumble once it is has cooled. Set aside.
  2. Add the onions to the bacon drippings in the pan and cook until the onions are soft, about 3-5 minutes. Deglaze the pan by adding about 1/2 cup of the water. As the liquid bubbles and simmers, scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release the flavor infused brown bits.
  3. Add the rest of the water and the potatoes. Bring the pan to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the potatoes are partially cooked, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add the fish and corn to the saucepan and simmer until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the potatoes are soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Whisk the heavy cream and flour together and add it to the pan. Add the parsley, salt and pepper, and stir until the chowder is thickened. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes longer. Serve warm in bowls topped with a pat of butter and reserved bacon. Makes 6 main-dish servings, or 10 side-dish servings.
