Fish Chowder (Bermuda)

"I used this recipe for week 30 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook on meal from every nation on Earth, and Bermuda is my 30th stop. Please note that I never use any recipe for my blog that I'm not reasonably sure is from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. I did not personally like this recipe--way too many carrots and celery for my tastes. If you like that sort of thing though, you will probably have a better opinion than I did."

  • Melt the butter and cook the onions, garlic and green pepper in it until soft. Then add the water and the fish filets.
  • Add the bay leaves and thyme, then put the peppercorns and whole cloves (if that's what you're using) into a tea ball and drop into the stock.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, the beef consomme, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until well incorporated, then add the potatoes, carrots and celery.
  • Add the rum and Sherry Peppers sauce and bring back to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and partially cover the pot. Simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • When the chowder is done, remove the tea ball and bay leaves, garnish with the parsley and top each serving with ground black pepper.
  • Serve with lemon wedges, extra rum and Sherry Peppers sauce on the side.

I am a mother of two with another one on the way! I am married to an Englishman and we own a small business in our local area. We live in a very small town called Rough and Ready (yes there really is a place called Rough and Ready!) I am a part-time writer and full time mom. My kids were born 15 months apart and keep me so busy I barely have enough time to cook and no time at all for my other passion, horseback riding. I once had four horses but am down to two; my Arab mare Argo and old Denver. Both of them spend the vast majority of their time standing around in my back yard eating hay. I get to feed them and look at them, but until my kids are all in school (and I stop having more kids) that's about it. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
