Seafood Chowder

 1 clove of garlic

½ white onion diced

¾ cup diced carrot

¼ tsp smoked paprika

1 medium potato, diced

2 oz flour

1 ½ oz butter

A little olive oil to fry

4 cups of Duncannon Fish chowder mix

2 pints of Wexford Creamery milk

Salt and pepper

Spring onions, chive or parsley to finish

  • In a pot add a little olive oil and sweat off the onion and garlic until soft
  • Add the smoked haddock / coley from the chowder mix and mix well
  • Add the carrot and paprika and cook a little for 1 minute
  • If the pan seems dry add a dash of water
  • Now add the butter, potato and flour – season
  • Mix well and add the milk slowly to make sure there are no lumps left in the chowder
  • Stir well until thick for 4-5 minutes
  • At this stage the mix can be left to finish later from up to two days in advance
  • Continue or reheat
  • Add the remaining fish from the chowder mix and do not stir too much
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes until the fish just cooks then add the herbs and season to taste
Season to taste and enjoy with some fresh bread. You could also ladle into a bowl of pasta or noodles or mash or you could use it as a base for a fish pie with a little more chunky fish added and topped with either puff pastry or mashed potato.
