Cod Chowder Recipe

Serves 2

  • 1 medium potato, scrubbed and cut into ½” cubes
  • 3 strips thick-cut smoked bacon, cut into ½” pieces
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, washed and halved
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup yellow corn
  • 1 teaspoon dried whole cumin seeds
  • 1 8 oz. cod fillet, cut into 1 ½” pieces
  • 1 ½ cups 2% milk
  • Salt and pepper

In a medium soup pot, cook bacon over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until browned. Add onion, tomatoes, and cumin seeds, and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Add potatoes, corn, milk, and chicken stock; bring mixture to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes over medium heat. Season cod with salt and pepper and add to chowder. Continue to simmer for 4-5 minutes. The cod will be done when the fish turns white and flakes apart. Taste the chowder before serving, and season with salt and pepper as needed.
