minced peeled onion
garlic cloves, peeled and mashed
finely cut green peppers
canned tomatoes, chopped
salt, to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne or 1/4 teaspoon
beau monde seasoning
white fish fillets
1 lb fresh or quick-frozen haddock or 1 lb
cod, cleaned and cubed
finely cut parsley
- Cook onion, garlic, and green pepper in oil in heavy 3quart pot or Dutch oven until onions are golden.
- Sprinkle with flour.
- Stir and cook 2 or 3 minutes.
- Add water, tomatoes and paste, seasonings and wine.
- Stir and bring to boiling point.
- Add fish.
- Lower heat and let simmer 1 hour or until fish is done but still firm.
- Serve in warmed chowder bowls, topped with parsley.
- Makes 6 or more servings.
- Garlic French bread goes well with this chowder.
- Actually it's essential!
- People who imagine they don't like fish love this soup.
- It makes a hearty one-dish meal.
- In fact, that's the only way I ever serve it.
- The"makings" are always on hand.
- Sometimes I dress it up by serving it in a treasured Meissen tureen (I first warm it carefully with warm water) with its six antique matching soup plates.
- Fruit is the obvious finish for the meal-a big bowl of iced, assorted fruits.
