    I ate three bowls! Having visited Newfoundland, I knew I’d need to make a few changes. I did use bacon grease left over from breakfast for the onions, and I also added sliced mushrooms. Instead of savory, I used a Cajun based seasoning with cayenne. I did not use carrots (I ate a LOT of carrots in Newfoundland), and substituted peas and corn. Instead of water, I used chicken bone broth. I also added a few T of grated cheese left over from tacos. The best part of this was the canned milk. It added a depth of flavor that fresh milk would lack. This is a great way to use frozen cod filets, and we will be making it again.
