Pix Rowe Miller's Family Fish Chowder

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Soups, Fish

 Ingredients List

  • 6 sl Bacon; 1/4" thick
  • 3 c Diced yellow onions
  • 6 md Potatoes; peeled
  • 1 lb Haddock
  • 1 lb Cod
  • 2 cn Evaporated milk; (3 cups)
  • 1 c Whole milk
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper


Fry the bacon, remove from the pan, and place on a paper towel. Saute the
onions in the bacon fat and set the pan aside. Cut the potatoes in half the
long way, then into 1/4" slices. Put them in a nonreactive pot large enough
for the chowder. Cover the potatoes with water and boil until tender. Be
careful not to put in too much water or the chowder will be soupy. While
the potatoes are cooking, cut the fish into generous bite-sized pieces.
When the potatoes are ready, add the fish to the pot, cover and simmer
until the fish flakes. When the fish is done, crumble the bacon and add it
to the pot along with the onions and any grease in the pan, the evaporated
and whole milks. Bring the mixture to boil, cover, and turn the heat down.
Simmer for five minutes and add salt and pper to taste. Chowder invariably
tastes better when made a day ahead.

According to Katherine Hall Page.... The Rowe recipe may be happily
modified in all sorts of ways. The chowder is still quite delectable with
olive oil instead of bacon fat. You may also use salt pork. Two kinds of
fish make for a more interesting chowder, but these can be any combination
of the following: haddock, cod, pollack, monkfish and hake. Finally there
is the question of garnishes: dill chopped parsley, oyster crackers, butter
are all good. And Faith and Pix's friend on Sanpere, Jane Weiss, swears by
her chowder to which she adds curry spices!
