Method

  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan. Tip in the bacon, then cook until starting to brown. Add the onion, cook until soft, then pour over the milk and stir through the potatoes. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins.
  2. Add the haddock, then leave to gently cook for another 10 mins. By now the fish should have defrosted so you can break it into large chunks. Stir through the sweetcorn, then cook for another few mins until the fish is cooked through and the sweetcorn has defrosted. Scatter over parsley, if using. Serve with plenty of crusty bread.

This was lush! strange it didn't say to add seasoning though (salt and pepper is surely always a must!) Really nice flavours and I did wonder whether some cream would be a cheeky but delicious addition!

Made this yesterday and the whole family really loved it. We did, however, find it a little salty so will be using reduced salt stock next time. Having leftovers for lunch today :)

I found it a bit bland, so I added some vegetable stock. This improved the taste no end. Very hearty meal. Will make again

Not sure why this is classed as 'moderately easy' but maybe that's because I made this in the slow cooker. I sautéed the potatoes, onion, and replaced bacon for prosciutto ham, then put the mix into the slow cooker and followed as per recipe guide. Easy, simple cosy food.

Excellent soup, added a bit of cornflour to thicken...

Great dish! Easily made enough for three and very filling! I added some flour to thicken as advised by others and plenty of seasoning. Delicious! Great autumn dish, will definitely make again.

Really simple, fast and tasty! I used fresh haddock and fish stock (out of veg), but will have frozen smoked haddock in the freezer in the future so I can make this. Makes me wish I was eating it for lunch by the Cornish coast.

i found it a bit bland and the soup too thin so it definately needs flour to thicken it up a bit and give it some depth.

I added some cornflour (corn starch), but other than that, this recipe was perfect. Filling, tasty and enough for three or four.

This is a great store cupboard type recipe, so quick and easy, lovely with some tasty crusty bread

sounds very nice, as i don't eat fish or vegetables so would cook for other half and he would love it with some chunky bread from the bakers

Tasty and very easy. A very filling meal by itself and perfect for a cold night. I got three healthy portions out of it too.

Yummy! I think I would also like to try thickening slightly next time but lovely and tasty and there will definitely be a next time!

I found the recipe to be wonderfully tasty, but a bit thin and broth-like as opposed to being a full bodied chowder. The next time I make it, I'll include a tablespoon or so of flour in the mix prior to adding the milk and potatoes, just to thicken the "juice". We had it with lots of crusty baguette and it was scrummy. :-)

So easy and tasty!! Made it as a starter, but so substantial we didn't need anything else once we'd eaten this.

This was quick and easy to make and actually served 3 large portions. Good comfort food.
