Cod Chowder

Hi...I use film as an inspiration for tonight's meal. Please watch the following link.

Chowder is very nice, and also very easy. Why not cook it? I've included enough food so you can eat it with someone else. Because that's what I did. It's nice to share.

You'll need...

500g of cod, filleted, skinned, boned and chopped into big chunks

a couple of slices of middle bacon

a leek

3 medium white potatoes, peeled and chopped into even cubes

4 blocks frozen spinach

big handful of frozen peas

small tin of evaporated milk

half a cup of full fat milk

spoonful of butter

half a cup of water/fish stock

plenty of salt and pepper

parsley to garnish

Fry the bacon until crispy, drag it out allow to cool. Chop into little chunks and set aside until the dish is finished. Add the butter to the pan and saute the leeks until softened. Add the potatoes and stir for half a minute or so, then add enough water/stock to cover. Simmer gently until the potatoes are well cooked.

Now it's time for the milk, the evaporated milk and the spinach and simmer until the spinach blocks have melted. At this point, it might still be a little thin, and if it is, maybe you could crush up a potato or two in the soup. This should do the trick.

Now drop the cod into the pot. Give it ten minutes or so, then add your peas and give it another couple of minutes or so, until the peas are done. Adjust your seasonings accordingly and turn out into a bowl, topping with parsley and the bacon. Proceed to shit your pants with joy.

  16. Do you think it would work with, say, chicken, instead of cod? because I'm really not a fishy type of guy...

  18. this looks absolutely disgusting. If you want to try something good you should cook up some Chicken Cordon Bleu and saute it in a sherry wine sauce.
