recipe fish chowder crockpot slow cooker friendly
Wed 5th, Feb, 2014
Well I’m here again, G’day, I am here with a super tasty chowder recipe, a fish chowder that can go in your slow cooker…
I’m still up and down as I write about fish chowder in the crockpot, but I’m rolling with it ladies, it’s a bumpy ride this one I’m on at the mo’ and I’m doing lots of strange things, including but not limited to excessive and over the top online rug stalking…who knew…at least it’s not bedlinen I suppose…talking of that I am about to persuade a large teenager to move some furniture in my bedroom…part of the ride has involved me enjoying food foofing and I find myself messing around with bowls of chowder, loading up pics on my computer and enjoying giving them a tinkle and having a play and writing about how to make an easy chowder…
Anyway though I don’t want this place to be about poor old me, lots of people are a lot worse off….and to be honest it’s my happy do what the heck I fancy place on here, and, when all is said and done I am actually fine now, we made it through it all and so much healing and moving forward has happened that ummm actually somewhere in all of the revolting-ness I’ve walked away with something, not sure what it is but it is there…and I will talk about chowder and crock pots and things with cream and be done with it… speaking of things that can go in the slow cooker this curry recipe is in high rotation as comfort food in this old cottage at the moment…got to a love a curry when the going gets tough…
I first had clam chowder in San Francisco, not a bad place to have your first fish chowder right? I was pretty gobsmacked with it, as indeed was that lovely man going by the name of Mr BC who is so very lucky to have me as his wife, and it’s been a love love relationship ever since…we stopped in a restaurant we’d read about in one of those guide books, yup a bit touristy but a mix of locals and tourists and the chowder was good man, like so good I am still talking about it years later…do you have those food memories? I love them.
Since then I have experimented much, often, and always with chowder recipes and I love simple potato chowder too – so tasty, budget friendly and easy (you can find my recipe for that here) - fish chowder though is my fave and this one is pretty near the mark and for a recipe that you can throw about your kitchen so that it lands squarely in the lady sitting on the side doing all the work for you, I reckon it’s a keeper…the good thing about this too is that it’s good any way you want to cook it – crock-pot, stove top or oven….and it’s just easy, tasty, simple, fussy free comfort food. That’s my kinda recipe and my kiddos love it, while I love that they are getting all sorts of goodness in one big hit.
Fish Chowder Recipe
Slow Cooker Fish Chowder
2 carrots chopped
3 cloves garlic finely chopped
1/2 kilo / 1 lb fish (I actually used just over 1/2 a kilo for this)
3 sticks celery chopped
2 medium onions chopped
2 large potatoes diced
1/3 cup double (heavy) cream (eyeball it you might like less or more)
1 cup white wine
3 cups fish stock (
fresh herbs (chives, parsley, oregano or whatever you like, I add what I’ve got fresh)
dash of vinegar
grated cheese to top
1. if using slow cooker pop all ingredients in and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours.
2. if on stove top sweat onions and veggies for five or so minutes and turn to high add wine and burn off alcohol, then add all other ingredients and simmer very low for a few hours, at least 1 hour
3. about 15 or so minutes before the end of cooking time stir in the cream
beach cottage recipe notes :
lovely with crumbled bacon on this (or if you want the whole dish a bit more hearty add some back in at the beginning) and also good with shredded spring onions…you can sub the fish stock with veggie or shock horror a stock cube or one of those cartons of stock, I love those for ease and taste, but watch out for yucky stuff in the ingredients list on the back, *keep an eye on the liquid, you may need to adjust it depending on how long you cook it for, if you put too much in your slow cooker just leave the lid ajar and turn it on high…
Well I’ll be off then…I hope you like it, oh and if you try it or any of the recipes on here I’d love to hear what you think, I read every single comment,yes indeedy.
