Prawn chowder with mashed potato
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Whizzing corn in the blender gives this soup a rich, luxurious texture and thickens it, too
- STEP 1
Tip the corn into a food processor and blend to a purée. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain, mash with the milk and season to taste. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan, add most of the spring onions and fry for 2 mins until softened. Add the corn, tomato purée, paprika and stock. Bring to the boil, simmer for 5 mins, then stir in the prawns.
- STEP 2
Grill the bacon until crisp. Divide the soup between 4 bowls and spoon the mash into the centre of each. Break up the bacon and scatter over the top with the remaining spring onions.
