  1. Put the onion and potatoes into a large sauté pan. Pour over the vegetable stock and simmer for 6-8 mins until the potatoes are soft, but still have a slight bite. Add the chunks of smoked haddock. Tip in the creamed corn and add the milk – if you like a thinner chowder, add more.

  2. Gently simmer for 5-7 mins until the haddock is cooked (it should flake easily when pressed with a fork). Sprinkle over the parsley, if using, then ladle into bowls.

This was so simple to make, and was delicious. I had an extra fillet of fish and it will serve 3 easily as a filling meal, or 4 as a quick bite. The first time I'd used creamed corn so was a bit dubious, but will definitely make again.

This is a really nice change when you're used to cooking vegetable soup and so easy to make. It's lovely and creamy and the smoked fish taste is just right. The potatoes make it a filling meal.

I love smoked fish, so any recipe is OK by me. This was eaten by a sceptical 19 year old but rejected in disgust by the 9 and 12 year olds. Couldn't get creamed corn so blitzed some tinned stuff with some leftover double cream. Don't know if it was anything like it was supposed to be, but tasty!

This is absolutely amazing...real comfort food and unbelievably tasty! Creamed sweetcorn is often hard to come by but you can usually get it in Morrisons!

I have never eaten fish soup as just the thought of it makes me feel sick, but i made this for some family and i loved it, it was soooo yummy i am now a fish soup lover :-) i did add about half a pint of milk to it, this was accidental but it was very yummy

A little cream instead of the milk gives a slightly thicker chowder. Really tasty, quick and easy dish; recommended.
