DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
