Smoked Cod Chowder

August 3, 2016

With its hundreds of miles of coastline, it is no wonder that Ireland is famous for its fabulous fish and seafood. This recipe uses smoked cod, which gives the chowder a wonderfully rich flavor.

Serves 4

2 tablespoons salted butter

1 onion, finely chopped

1 small celery stalk, finely diced

2 potatoes, diced

1 small carrot, diced

1 1/4 cups boiling water

12 ounces smoked cod fillets, skinned and cut into bite-size pieces

1 1/4 cups whole milk

salt and pepper

fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs, to garnish


*Melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat, add the onion and celery, and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, or until soft but not brown.

*Add the potatoes, carrots, water, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Add the fish to the chowder and cook for an additional 10 minutes.

*Pour in the milk and heat gently. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding salt and pepper is necessary. Ladle into warm bowls and serve garnished with parsley sprigs.

I hope you enjoy this Irish recipe. God bless you!
