This recipe was sent in by a reader, Charles Robinson. It tastes as good as it sounds, and it's so easy that anyone can make it. Give mama the night off from the kitchen and cook it yourself! She may thank you for it by making dessert.
1 lb skinless fish fillets
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons margarine
2 cups diced potatoes (small dice, 1/2" square)
3/4 teaspoons salt
pepper to taste
2 cups whole milk
1 can cream style corn
boiling water (about three cups, but boil four cups in case)
Cut fish into about 1 inch squares. Heat margarine in a large saucepan. Add onion and cook until tender. Add diced potatoes. Add boiling water to cover the potatoes, salt, and pepper. Add diced fish. Cover and cook at medium heat for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add milk and cream style corn. Heat. Garnish with parsley, serve hot.
Note: I like to add a little Tabasco Sauce to my chowder, but it was not part of the recipe. If you want to make this a main course, add some diced carrots and peas when you add the potatoes along with some of your favorite sausage, smoked or chorizo, etc. The above recipe is good and it makes a great base for your own additions as well. Try adding fresh shucked oysters at the same time you add the creamed corn. Oh man, I can't stand it! I gotta go make some lunch.
