5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. A delicious, quick and easy fish chowder.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb tilapia fillet
  • 2 tablespoons seafood seasoning (Paul Prudhomme's Magic Seafood Seasoning Blend preferred)
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottle clam juice
  • 4 cups Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onion
  • 2 14 cups half-and-half cream

Directions

  1. 1. Rinse the fish filets and shake off excess water. Place the seasoning in a dish and press both sides of the fillets into the seasoning. Allow to rest.
  2. 2. Add the clam juice and the Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onion to a 2 quart saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  3. 3. Brown the filets in a non-stick skillet for 3 minutes per side. Remove them from the skillet and set aside.
  4. 5. Add the half & half to the potato mixture. Heat thoroughly but do not boil. Use a slotted spoon to crush some of the potatoes against the bottom and sides. This will thicken the chowder.
  5. 6. When the chowder thickens, add the fish. Adjust the seasoning by adding more Cajun seafood seasoning or more half & half as needed.
