  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 400ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 300g frozen sweetcorn (or drained weight from a can)

  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan until melted. Add the onion, celery and potatoes, and cook gently for 10 mins until the onion is really soft.

Add the sweetcorn, then place the haddock fillets on top. Let the mixture simmer very gently for 5 mins or until the haddock just starts to break up.

  3. To serve, carefully stir in half of the parsley, ladle the chowder into individual bowls and scatter with the remaining parsley at the table.

Used sweet potato as I didn't have any white, and blended the base as per a previous recommendation - delicious!

I found this really easy to make and tasty. I used vegetable stock and pureed half of the veg to give it a thicker creamier base. Will definitely make again.

Scrumdiddlyumptious! First time making this and it won't be the last. I did tweek just slightly in that I used 400ml each of stock and of milk..wanted a thicker consistency but also wanted a splash of cream in at the end. I also gave generous helpings of black pepper and a sprinkling of celery salt for extra flavour. I had creamed sweetcorn in the cupboard so used this and only had frozen smoked haddock fillets, which I defrosted first. Very, very tasty for not a lot of effort. I think the flavour will improve the longer this stands, however this pan full won't last that long.
