As most of you know I am a retired chef, and generally love detailed recipes. But, with all the stress of the past year and my mother's illness and death, I just haven't been in the mood to be too "cheffy." So, I was pleased to see this nice simple and delicious recipe from Arlene for Fish chowder! Mine is much more detailed and time consuming. Arlene's recipe is definitely one I would make- you know it's no good knowing all these wonderful detailed recipes if you don't actually make them! So give this one a try. think it would work well for any seafood.
Fish Chowder for 2
8 ounces of cod or other white fish
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp butter
heavy cream or half and half
1 cup chopped peppers (green, red, yellow)
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 cup water
Melt butter, add onion and saute unti clear. Add fish, and partially cover fish with cream. Cover the pan, and bring to almost boiling - poach the fish for about 7-10 min or until it flakes easily.
Break up the fish and add water, and vegetables, cover and steam until veggies are soft. Add more cream, and let it simmer to thicken. I use lots of Old Bay spices for this. If you can eat potatoes, add the potatoes when you add the veggies.
