Smoked Fish Chowder

This delicious creamy chowder is hearty enough for dinner but would also make a satisfying lunch. I've used frozen fish fillets as I find them cheaper than fresh but always look out for offers. Bear in mind that if you do use fresh the cooking time will be less!

Level 🍴🍴🍴


  • 2 smoked skinless fish fillets (I used Icelands own smoked haddock fillets)
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2-3 blocks frozen spinach
  • 3 tbsp double cream
  • salt & pepper

Melt 1 tbsp butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion & cook until soft but not browned.

Stir in the cornflour & cook for 1 minute then gradually add the stock stirring until smooth.

Season with salt & pepper then add the potatoes.

Allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are just tender.

Add the spinach & fish & simmer for 5 minutes.

Once the fish has cooked through break it up gently with a fork then stir well.

Simmer for a further 2-3 minutes then stir in the cream.

Serve with crusty bread.
