Great quick, cheap family favourite. I use a bag of frozen haddock (smoked or non smoked) or cod fillets (but can use any firm fish) and whatever green vegetables I have lying around. Perfect healthy mid week dinner.

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsps garlic puree
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 fish stock cubes
  • 4 or 5 potatoes, cut in to 3 cm (ish) chunks (I leave the skins on)
  • boiling water
  • 500g cod or haddock fillets, defrosted and cut into large chunks
  • 200g bag of prawns (optional)
  • 200g (approx) frozen peas or other green veg
  • 200ml milk
  • mature cheddar cheese, cubed, to serve


  1. Heat oil in large pan. Add garlic puree and saute onions until clear.

  2. Crumble fish stock cubes into pan and add potatoes. Fry while stirring for a minute or so, then pour enough hot water to cover the potatoes. Stir. Bring to the boil. Boil for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, or until potatoes are cooked.

  3. Using a fork or masher, crush a few of the potatoes to get preferred consistency. We like chowder quick thick, so I crush approx 50% of the potatoes. Season with salt and black pepper

  4. Add fish, prawns and veg. Bring back to the boil and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until fish is cooked through. Check seasoning.

  5. Take off heat and add milk. Stir

  6. Put cubes of cheddar in bowls and ladle chowder over. Serve.
