Description

A landlocked take on an East Coast classic. A perfect meal to mend the chilly January blues.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Large Onion, Diced (should Yield About 2 Cups)
  • 2 pounds Potatoes, Peeled And Cut Into 1" Cubes
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Basil
  • 2 whole Dried Bay Leaves
  • 2 cups Water
  • 12 ounces, weight Fresh Or Frozen Cod Fillet, Cut Into 1" Cubes
  • 2 cans (15 Oz. Size) Corn, With Liquid
  • 12 ounces, fluid Evaporated Milk

Preparation

Dice onion and peel potatoes. Melt butter over medium heat in a large pot. Add onions and sauté for about 5 minutes until onions are soft.

While the onions are cooking, cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes. After the onions have softened, add potatoes, salt, pepper, basil, bay leaves, and water to the pot and stir well. Cover the pot and increase heat to medium-high. Cook for about 15 minutes.

While the potatoes cook, cut the cod into 1-inch cubes. After 15 minutes, you should be able to easily stab the potatoes with fork, but they should not be totally soft. Place cod on top of the potatoes, not stirring, and re-cover the pot. Cook for an additional 10 minutes until the cod flakes easily with a fork. Add the corn and evaporated milk and stir well. Cover and bring just to boiling.

Remove from heat and remove lid. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

Adapted from a family recipe.

Made this tonight…LOVED IT! I was tempted to add bacon because I love bacon in my chowder, but I’m glad I didn’t. Made it pretty much exactly as written except I used frozen corn. I was worried about the water, thinking it would taste bland, but NO WAY, it was so flavorful, and the cod was just perfect. Ok, I’m going to stop talking now…it was just delicious, ok?
